Description Vincent Danen 2010-08-27 17:27:12 UTC
iCommon Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-3114 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2010-3114
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-3114
Assigned: 20100824
Reference: CONFIRM: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=49628
Reference: CONFIRM: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2010/08/stable-channel-update_19.html

The text-editing implementation in Google Chrome before 5.0.375.127
does not properly perform casts, which has unspecified impact and
attack vectors.

This flaw also affects upstream WebKit:


Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2010-10-05 16:23:37 UTC
This issue has been corrected in WebKitGTK 1.2.5.

Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2010-10-05 17:19:01 UTC
Created webkitgtk tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 640382]

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2010-11-18 17:10:16 UTC
Apple assigned CVE-2010-3808 to this same issue.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2010-11-18 17:16:45 UTC
We already pushed 1.2.5 to f12/f13... should we close this?
Or figure out somehow if it's fixed in 1.3.6 for f14?

Comment 6 Vincent Danen 2010-11-18 18:15:43 UTC
No, this needs to stay open until it is resolved in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

I also don't know if it is fixed in 1.3.6, but upstream is pretty good with the development branch so I suspect that if it is not fixed yet, it will be soon.
