Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 19:36:17 UTC
A use after free issue exists in WebKit's handling of drag and drop when the window acting as a source of a drag operation is closed before the drag operation is completed. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved memory management.
