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.
