In a later tweet he provides further explanations, stating that the NtGdiDrawStream which is called multiple times is causing a “not so interesting crash.”

Researchers from Secunia confirm the accuracy of the hacker’s findings, reporting that the flaw can be utilized by a hacker to take over a machine.

“The vulnerability is caused due to an error in win32k.sys and can be exploited to corrupt memory via e.g. a specially crafted web page containing an IFRAME with an overly large 'height' attribute viewed using the Apple Safari browser. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code with kernel-mode privileges,” reads Secunia’s report.
