Apple updates Safari with version 3.0.1 for Windows (beta)

New security patches address three of nine public vulnerabilities.

Stung by the harsh reception to Safari for Windows (beta) , Apple today released Safari 3.0.1 for Windows (beta), addressing three flaws. The updated version patches CVE-2007-3186, a command-injection vulnerability that may lead to arbitrary code execution; CVE-2007-3185, an out-of-bounds memory read issue that may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution; and CVE-2007-2391, a race condition that may allow cross-site scripting. The patches are issued for Windows XP and Windows Vista users; these issues do not affect Mac OS X systems.
