This week, Apple released security updates for both Safari 3 and for the upcoming Safari 4 browser. The updates for both versions of the Safari Browser include:

  • LibXML: used for RSS Feeds and the like.
  • Safari engine: multiple flaws with ‘input validation’ with the ‘feed’ protocol.
  • Webkit: a flaw within the ‘SVG’ object could lead to unwanted code execution.

These flaws affect both Mac OS X and Windows.

Safari Beta 4 requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, or Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later. The Windows Version requires Windows XP or Windows Vista.
