Description Josh Bressers 2010-05-10 18:44:40 UTC
Security researcher wushi of team509 reported that the frame construction
process for certain types of menus could result in a menu containing a
pointer to a previously freed menu item. During the cycle collection
process this freed item could be accessed, resulting in the execution of a
section of code potentially controlled by an attacker.
