Apple Issues Safari Security Update
Apple fixed 27 vulnerabilities in Safari for Mac OS X and Windows today.
All of the vulnerabilities exist in the open-source Webkit engine. In addition, nearly all of them can be exploited to execute code remotely on Macs or Windows PCs.
Several of them can be exploited through drive-by attacks on malicious sites, Apple noted in the advisory. For example, an integer overflow exists in Webkit's handling of Text objects, and could be exploited via a maliciously crafted Website to cause an application crash or permit code execution. The issue was fixed through improved bounds checking, Apple said.
