Description

WebKit contains a use-after-free error in the 'SubframeLoader::loadSubframe' function in WebCore/loader/SubframeLoader.cpp when handling mutation events during sub-frame loading where the main frame is removed. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
