CVE-2009-1725

Published: 9 July 2009

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.

Notes

AuthorNote

webkit is a fork of khtml from kdelibs. kdelibs5 is farther from
it, while qt4-x11 attempts to unify khtml and webkit

expected output: http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/LayoutTests/fast/parser/eightdigithexentity-expected.txt?rev=44799&format=txt

as per RH bug, in kde4libs, this is a rendering bug, not a security bug
