Apple Patches Safari For Windows……Finally…

After being poked, prodded, embarrassed, and hacked, Apple has released Safari 3.1.2 for Windows which apparently fixes the “carpet bombing” flaw discovered by Nitesh Dhanjani back in May. The interesting thing is that if you read the release notes, they don’t credit Dhanjani at all. Instead they credit Aviv Raff with the find (even though Raff in his blog credits Dhanjani with the find). I’m sure there’s a message in there someplace. Another interesting thing is that this flaw still exists in the Mac version of Safari. It is entirely possible that they plan on fixing this in the future. Only time will tell I guess.

Meanwhile, I’ll continue to use my favorite browser in the meantime.
