Webkit HTML Document Fragments Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability caused by the mishandling of HTML document fragments.

An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This can allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

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.
