Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-191
Posted Dec 21, 2012
Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-191 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Apple Safari Webkit. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the library's implementation of a HTMLMedia element. After a source element is created, an attacker can catch the beforeLoad event before the element is used, and delete the element. The pointer to the source element will then be referenced causing a use-after-free condition, which can lead to code execution under the context of the application.
