Apple has patched several Safari vulns in the new 2.0 firmware. One thing to note. Apple is effectively charging $10 to iPod Touch users for a security patch. You stay classy Apple.
Finally, after months of waiting, iPhone users finally get security fixes for a batch of known software vulnerabilities.
The latest iPhone 2.0 and iPod Touch 2.0 update patches at least 13 documented vulnerabilities, including several code execution holes in the Safari (mobile) Web browser. The Safari bug that won the CanSecWest Pwn2Own contest was also patched.
In all, Apple documents eight flaws affecting Safari and another three bugs in WebKit, the open-source browser engine that powers Safari.
