Description

WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before 4.1.3 and 5.0.x before 5.0.3 and Google Chrome before 6.0.472.62, does not properly perform a cast of an unspecified variable, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via an SVG element in a non-SVG document.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-4_1_3
  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_0_3
