WebKit CVE-2014-1303 Heap Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

WebKit is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

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

Note: This BID was previously titled 'Apple Safari Unspecified Heap Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability'. The title and technical details have been changed to better reflect the underlying component affected.
