After hacker dissection, Safari beta is patched RRS feed

  • Question

  • Three days after releasing Safari 3.0, Apple has issued its first patch of the beta software: Safari 3.0.1, which fixes three flaws in the browser including security vulnerabilities. Although the issues found in the first beta release were surprisingly numerous, security researchers are applauding Apple for pushing out the update so quickly. Apple has often taken weeks or months to release patches and updates in response to vulnerability concerns. This is the first time that Apple has released a version of Safari for the Windows platform. Because it now can be run on a much larger number of systems, the code has been getting more attention from the security community.
