Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2009-09-08 11:02:57 UTC
CVE-2009-1690 (
  Use-after-free vulnerability in WebKit, as used in Apple Safari
  before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch
  1.1 through 2.2.1, Google Chrome, and possibly other
  products, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause
  a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) by
  setting an unspecified property of an HTML tag that causes child
  elements to be freed and later accessed when an HTML error occurs,
  related to "recursion in certain DOM event handlers."

Presumably all affected versions are gone from tree. Closing as discussed with keytoaster. No GLSA for you.
