Macromedia earlier this week issued a security bulletin detailing possible exploits in its Flash Player: "A new version of Macromedia Flash Player 6.0.79 fixes these issues to protect our users from any content that attempts to execute this type of malicious code. Macromedia categorizes this issue as a critical update and recommends users immediately update to the newest player.... As part of the Macromedia Flash Player, we?ve also included a Cumulative Security Patch which addresses previously fixed buffer overrun issues and also potential security issues with domain name spoofing."

I haven't been back to the site since I couldn't get in with safari. Hopefully when safari becomes a final version 1.0 and not beta this won't be a problem.

It is sad to see that the flash performance is so poor on a mac as well.
