Apple patches Safari beta browser a second time

  • Apple issued security updates to patch four vulnerabilities in Mac OS X and the Safari beta, marking the second time in eight days that the company has had to fix its newest browser, which runs on both Mac and Windows XP and Vista machines. The 2007-006 update for Mac OS X 10.3, "Panther" and 10.4 "Tiger," fixes a pair of problems in Safari - the production-quality versions bundled with the operating system - including a memory corruption vulnerability that could end with an attacker in control of the Mac.
