Apple's Windows Safari continues
Apple's Safari browser, a beta version of which was recently released for Windows, has been having a few security vulnerabilities and stability and display problems. Apple has now slipped out beta version 3.0.1, which is aimed at fixing a few of the security vulnerabilities.
The new version does not appear to fix the vulnerability in the protocol handler discovered by Thor Larholm, by exploiting which a web page can run commands on a visitor's system. Is also remains unclear whether the security problems discovered by Aviv Raff and David Maynor have been remedied. However, since version 3.0.1 is just as unstable and unreliable as its predecessor, it remains advisable to avoid using it at present.
