    A mail from Apple just popped into my inbox announcing the release of Safari 3.0.1 Beta for Windows fixing these vulnerabilities:

    CVE-ID: CVE-2007-3186
    Available for: Windows XP or Vista
    Impact: Visiting a malicious website may lead to arbitrary code
    execution
    Description: A command injection vulnerability exists in the Windows
    version of Safari 3 Public Beta. By enticing a user to visit a
    maliciously crafted web page, an attacker can trigger the issue which
    may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the
    issue by performing additional processing and validation of URLs.
    This does not pose a security issue on Mac OS X systems, but could
    lead to an unexpected termination of the Safari browser.

    CVE-ID: CVE-2007-3185
    Available for: Windows XP or Vista
    Impact: Visiting a malicious website may lead to an unexpected
    application termination or arbitrary code execution
    Description: An out-of-bounds memory read issue in Safari 3 Public
    Beta for Windows may lead to an unexpected application termination or
    arbitrary code execution when visiting a malicious website. This
    issue does not affect Mac OS X systems.

    CVE-ID: CVE-2007-2391
    Available for: Windows XP or Vista
    Impact: Visiting a malicious website may allow cross-site scripting
    Description: A race condition in Safari 3 Public Beta for Windows
    may allow cross site scripting. Visiting a maliciously crafted web
    page may allow access to JavaScript objects or the execution of
    arbitrary JavaScript in the context of another web page. This issue
    does not affect Mac OS X systems.

    Now I guess those people that were all whiny yesterday can ****.

    It is really cool to see them hit up some updates that fast, tackling the windows issues first may have been a good move.

    I think it is slightly different

    On windows you expect a windows application to **** it up.

    Apple has this impression that the software it makes doesn't crash etc. so if windows users start seeing it crash this image will get tarnished.
