RETIRED: Google Chrome Malformed 'href' Tag Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

Google Chrome is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because the application fails to handle specially crafted HTML 'href' tags.

Attackers can exploit this issue to crash the affected application, denying service to legitimate users. Given the nature of this issue, attackers may also be able to run arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.

Google Chrome 0.2.149.27 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.

NOTE: This BID is being retired because it is a duplicate of BID 31071 (Google Chrome 'url_elider.cc' Buffer Overflow Vulnerability).
