Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 19:16:27 UTC
An API abuse issue exists in WebKit's handling of libxml contexts. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved handling of libxml context objects.
