Description

WebKit before r50173, as used in Google Chrome before 3.0.195.32, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a web page that calls the JavaScript setInterval method, which triggers an incompatibility between the WTF::currentTime and base::Time functions.
