[$500]  High Memory error in table layout. Credit to wushi of team509.
However, according to TechCrunch, Apple did not receive any cash. What a tremendous loss for a multi-billion company.
Thanks to Blake for this.

Even with NoScript plugin installed, users were still vulnerable. Fortunately, May 27th update fixes that.
