CVE-2010-4198

HIGH
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.44, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and other products, does not properly handle large text areas, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted HTML document.
