WebGL Security Risks
added May 11, 2011 at 01:50 pm | updated May 16, 2011 at 10:20 am
US-CERT is aware of reports indicating that WebGL contains multiple significant security issues. The impact of these issues includes denial of service, and cross-domain attacks. WebGL is a new web standard that is enabled by default in Firefox 4 and Google Chrome and is included in Safari.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the Context report and update their systems as necessary to help mitigate the risks.
