Apple Safari version 3.1 contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition.
This vulnerability is due to an unspecified error. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to download a malformed file, which could cause the user's browser application to fail abnormally. An exploit could result in a temporary DoS. Because a simple browser restart restores functionality, exploits of this vulnerability will have a minimal system impact.
A proof-of-concept exploit is available.
Apple has not confirmed this vulnerability, and no updates are available.
