WebKit Vulnerabilities Fixed

By | June 11, 2009 | 0 Comments

WebKit Vulnerabilities FixedThe latest Chrome version 2.0.172.31 and Safari 4.0 has fixed one of the vulnerabilities which was exploited in WebKit earlier this month.

As H Online describes: A vulnerability in WebKit can be exploited by an attacker to crash a tab or execute arbitrary code in Google Chrome due to a memory corruption issue in WebKit’s handling of recursion in certain DOM event handlers. For an attack to be successful, a victim must first visit a maliciously crafted website. The malicious code, however, will be sandboxed, limiting the damage that an attacker can do when exploiting the vulnerability.
