Apple Fixes 27 Critical Safari Bugs
Apple has fixed 27 serious security flaws that left its Safari web browser open to remote attack.
The vulnerabilities were labeled "highly critical" by the security firm Secunia, and could have allowed hackers to bypass Safari's security restrictions and compromise the targeted systems. The flaws were present in version 5.0.3 of Safari for Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6, and Windows, and also affected iTunes, iPhones, and the iPod Touch.
The security patches, released Nov. 18, are available for download at the Safari website.
