Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 17:52:46 UTC
An uninitialized memory access issue exists in WebKit's handling of selection changes on form input elements. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved handling of selections.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2010-05-31 17:18:20 UTC
This issue does not affect webkitgtk (1.2.0 (r56916)) or qtwebkit (4.6.2 (r50154)) as it was fixed in an earlier svn revision (r46437).
