WebKit Right-to-Left Displayed Text Handling Memory Corruption Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to a remote memory-corruption vulnerability; fixes are available.

Successful exploits may allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

This issue was previously documented in BID 38671 (Apple Safari Prior to 4.0.5 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
