    Over the last two weeks, security researchers have reported eight different zero-day vulnerabilities in Apple’s Safari browser.

    Details of these vulnerabilities, all rated “high risk,” have been sold to Tippingpoint’s Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), a program that purchases the rights to vulnerability information in exchange for exclusivity to broker fixes with affected vendors.

    It is probably more likely a flaw in the webkit engine used to render pages. This is a common problem and one that is usually exploited. If you are feeling paranoid try switching to Firefox, Opera, or iCab for your web browsing.
