Zero Day Initiative Advisory 10-030 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Apple Safari and other WebKit based browsers. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page. The specific flaw exists in the handling of the run-in value for display CSS styles. A specially crafted web page can cause a use after free() condition in WebKit's WebCore::RenderBlock() method. This can be further leveraged by attackers to execute arbitrary code under the context of the current user.
