    WebKit in Apple iOS before 9.3 and Safari before 9.1 mishandles

    Co.,Ltd.
    WebKit in Apple iOS before 9.3 and Safari before 9.1 does not
    properly restrict redirects that specify a TCP port number, which
    allows remote attackers to bypass intended port restrictions via a
    crafted web site.

    WebKit in Apple iOS before 9.3, Safari before 9.1, and tvOS before
    9.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a
    denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted web site.

    Credit to an anonymous researcher.
    The Page Loading implementation in WebKit in Apple iOS before 9.3
    and Safari before 9.1 mishandles character encoding during access to
    cached data, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin
    Policy and obtain sensitive information via a crafted web site.

CVE-2016-1786
    Versions affected: WebKitGTK+ before 2.10.5.
    Credit to ma.la of LINE Corporation.
    The Page Loading implementation in WebKit in Apple iOS before 9.3
    and Safari before 9.1 mishandles HTTP responses with a 3xx (aka
    redirection) status code, which allows remote attackers to spoof the
    displayed URL, bypass the Same Origin Policy, and obtain sensitive
    cached information via a crafted web site.
