Last week, Apple has decided to do the same with older versions of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in.

A hole in Apple's mobile Safari can be exploited to display a different URL in the address field than the Web site being viewed in the browser. 

 

Users of iOS 5 users, beware a security flaw in Safari that can be used to trick you into visiting potentially malicious Web sites.


Discovered earlier this month by Germany security firm MajorSecurity, the vulnerability could allow cybercriminals to spoof the URL displayed in the browser, trapping users at the wrong sites.

Remote code flaws in browser fixed

 

Apple has released security updates to protect users from remote code executions in the company's Safari and OS X platforms.

The company said that the Safari 6.0.3 update would include fixes to patch vulnerable components of the browser and its WebKit engine. The update includes fixes for flaws which, if targeted by an attacker, could allow for remote code execution attacks.

 

Additionally, the update addresses a pair of flaws in the browser which could be exploited by attackers to perform a cross-site scripting attack.

 

Apple is recommending that users running OS X Lion download the Safari update through the Apple Software Update application.

Apple plugs staggering number of holes in Safari browser

Apple plugs staggering number of holes in Safari browser | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple has released an update to its Safari browser, version 6, that plugs 121 security holes, most of which involve the WebKit rendering engine.

 

The Safari update fixes a staggering 121 vulnerabilities, 117 of those flaws in WebKit, a browser engine designed to render HTML webpages. Most of the WebKit vulnerabilities could result in an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution if the user visits a maliciously created website, according to the security update.

 

Apple also patched two issues with the handling of feed:// URLs – one is a cross-site scripting vulnerability that could be exploited if a user visited a maliciously crafted site, and the other is an access control issue that could be exploited to send files from a user’s system to a remote server.

 

Another Safari fix resolves a problem in which passwords may autocomplete even when the site specifies that autocomplete should be disabled.
