Description Pedro Sampaio 2020-03-09 15:39:24 UTC
accessibility/AXObjectCache.cpp in WebKit, as used in WebKitGTK through 2.26.4 and WPE WebKit through 2.26.4, allows a denial of service (application crash) because maintenance of the m_deferredFocusedNodeChange data structure mishandles removal.

Comment 2 Michael Catanzaro 2020-03-12 14:08:58 UTC
Note this was misclassified as denial of service, but it's actually a use after free, which we classify as remote code execution.
