Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 20:14:18 UTC
An off by one memory read out of bounds issue exists in WebKit's handling of HTML lists. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or the disclosure of the contents of memory. This issue is addressed through improved bounds checking.
