Microsoft Issues Apple Safari Security Advisory
As if Microsoft does not have enough of its own Internet Explorer browser security problems about which to worry, the Redmond-based software giant is warning Windows users about potential vulnerabilities in the competing Apple Safari browser.
One of three bugs Dhanjani found in connection with Safari, the flaw exposes PC users to a "carpet bomb" attack, allowing potentially malicious files to be downloaded to and run on a PC without the owners' consent.
Apple, according to a post on Dhanjani's blog, does not consider this issue to be "security related" despite evidence that the vulnerability also affects Mac OS X users.
