CVE-2009-1701

Published: 10 June 2009

Use-after-free vulnerability in the JavaScript DOM implementation in WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) by destroying a document.body element that has an unspecified XML container with elements that support the dir attribute.

AuthorNote
jdstrand
webkit is a fork of khtml from kdelibs. kdelibs5 is farther from
it, while qt4-x11 attempts to unify khtml and webkit
mdeslaur
code does not seem present in kde4libs
webkit code is different in hardy, need to check reproducer
as of 2009-09-18, not fixed in upstream qt:4.5 tree
