Google Chrome before 14.0.835.163 does not properly handle Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) token sequences, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to a stale node.

Weakness

The product constructs all or part of a command, data structure, or record using externally-influenced input from an upstream component, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes special elements that could modify how it is parsed or interpreted when it is sent to a downstream component.
