Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 13:17:19 EDT
A use after free issue exists in WebKit's handling of attribute manipulation. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved memory reference tracking.
