Apple Releases Safari 3.2.3, Beta 4 Security Updates

| Product News

Apple released Safari 3.2.3 and a new public beta of Safari 4 late on Tuesday. The updates provide several security fixes for both versions of Apple's Web browser application.

The updates address issues where an attacker could potentially could cause Safari to crash or execute arbitrary code when a user visits a maliciously crafted Web site. The updates also patch security-related issues when loading maliciously crafted URL feeds, and correct a memory corruption issue in WebKit that could lead to arbitrary code execution when visiting maliciously crafted Web sites.

Safari 3.2.3 and the Safari 4 beta updates are available via Apple's Software update application. Mac OS X 10.5.7 must be installed before the Safari beta 4 update will be available.

Good thing too. After installing 10.5.7 my Safari wouldn’t connect to Google or a variety of sites. Checked SWUpdate, new Safari, downloaded, lo and behold it all works again.

Would have been nice if it was included in the updater as well as a stand alone.


I just checked and it appears I already have Safari 3.2.3.  It must have been included in yesterday’s OS X 10.5.7 Combo update?
