Impact :

    If JavaScript is enabled, by tricking a user into visiting a
    malicious web page which would send a specially crafted HTML script
    that contains references to deleted objects with the 'designMode'
    property enabled, an attacker can crash the web browser and in theory
    manage to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
    the browser.
