Webkit History Feature Address Bar URI Spoofing Vulnerability

Webkit is affected by a URI-spoofing vulnerability.

An attacker may leverage this issue by inserting arbitrary content to spoof a URI presented to an unsuspecting user. This may lead to a false sense of trust because the victim may be presented with a URI of a seemingly trusted site while interacting with the attacker's malicious site.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 42571 (Google Chrome prior to 5.0.375.127 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
