WebKit 'XMLHttpRequest' HTTP Response Splitting Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to an HTTP response-splitting vulnerability because it fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input.

A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to influence or misrepresent how web content is served, cached, or interpreted. This could aid in various attacks that try to entice client users into a false sense of trust.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 35260 (Apple Safari Prior to 4.0 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities), but has been assigned its own record to better document it.
