Description

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0.2, as used on iPhone OS before 3.1, iPhone OS before 3.1.1 for iPod touch, and other platforms; KHTML in kdelibs in KDE; QtWebKit (aka Qt toolkit); and possibly other products do not properly handle numeric character references, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libwebkit-1-0-1
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libwebkit-1-0-1-dbg
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libwebkit-dev

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
