WebKit HTML 'Link' DNS Pre-Fetching Security Bypass Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability.

Attackers can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting user into visiting a malicious webpage.

Successful exploits will allow clients to send requests to malicious servers that can aid in further attacks.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 44938 (Apple Safari Prior to 5.0.3 and 4.1.3 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
