Technical Details:
The following Linux Distribution Package is affected: webkit-gtk2 CVE-2010-1791 Integer signedness error in WebKit in Apple Safari before 5.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.5 through 10.6 and Windows, and before 4.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.4, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service via vectors involving a JavaScript array index. CVE-2010-3812 Integer overflow in the Text::wholeText method in dom/Text.cpp in WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before 5.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.5 through 10.6 and Windows, and before 4.1.3 on Mac OS X 10.4, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and possibly other products allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service via vectors involving Text objects. CVE-2010-3813 The WebCore::HTMLLinkElement::process function in WebCore/html/HTMLLinkElement.cpp in WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before 5.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.5 through 10.6 and Windows, and before 4.1.3 on Mac OS X 10.4, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and possibly other products does not verify whether DNS prefetching is enabled when processing an HTML LINK element, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions, as demonstrated by an HTML e-mail message that uses a LINK element for X-Confirm-Reading-To functionality. CVE-2010-4197 Use-after-free vulnerability in WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.44, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving text editing. CVE-2010-4198 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 or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted HTML document. CVE-2010-4204 WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.44, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and other products, accesses a frame object after this object has been destroyed, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. CVE-2010-4206 Array index error in the FEBlend::apply function in WebCore/platform/graphics/filters/FEBlend.cpp in WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.44, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SVG document, related to effects in the application of filters. CVE-2010-4577 The CSSParser::parseFontFaceSrc function in WebCore/css/CSSParser.cpp in WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 8.0.552.224, Chrome OS before 8.0.552.343, webkitgtk before 1.2.6, and other products does not properly parse Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) token sequences, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted local font, related to 'Type Confusion.'

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
