Unspecified vulnerability in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.41 allows
remote attackers to bypass the pop-up blocker via unknown vectors.

It is unclear to me as of yet whether this does affect webkitgtk; the code
looks like it may be applicable but due to how Chrome handles things
differently, it is possible this is Chrome-specific.  It needs further

Comment 1 Thomas Biege 2010-11-29 14:54:28 UTC
P5->P3 mass change
Comment 2 Vincent Untz 2011-01-03 15:19:45 UTC
This code does not seem to be in webkit-gtk 1.2.x, so the issue won't affect 11.3 and earlier.

The code is in Factory, but it already features a fixed version (the fix changed a bit later, so the changeset mentioned here is not really a good indicator, see http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/69924/trunk/WebCore/loader/NavigationScheduler.cpp)
