Description

WebKit contains a flaw that allows a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because it does not validate certain unspecified input before returning it to the user. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.
