WebKit JavaScript Exception Handling Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because it fails to adequately handle JavaScript exceptions.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

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.
