WebKit 'execCommand()' Function Clipboard Overwrite Security Weakness

Adobe Flash Player is prone to a security weakness that may allow attackers to inject arbitrary content into a user's clipboard.

Attackers can exploit this issue to overwrite content that is contained in a victim's clipboard. As a result, attacker-supplied URIs can persist in the victim's clipboard.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 40620 (Apple Safari Prior to 5.0 and 4.1 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
