I'm installing the Security Update now. It's nice that Panther still gets updates even when Leopard will be released in a few months.

Safari bug fix!

Safari now remembers the logo of web sites bookmarked. It used to just default back to the globe every time I restarted Safari. Cool.

Funny, I figured the first bug Apple would fix in the Safari beta by now would have been that pesky full screen problem. Oh well

Software Updates text is different

This is a bit odd of saying but I've noticed the fonts are different:

If you click "Safari 3 Beta Update" and you'll see Times font description.

If you clikc "Security Update ...." and you'll see different font description. Strange, huh?

(see attachs below)

Love verbose detail of "bug fixes".
Looks like safari, webcore and webkit are the only updates. this is verbose:

<http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306173>

i manually changed my ring tone, so for penance, i get to restore, too. i like that a backup of my syncing preferences was available to easily restore the data. makes me feel a bit better about hacking around the iPhone. maybe i'll try iFuntastic once the phone is back up and running.

This update addresses the issue through an improved cross-domain security check. Credit to Secunia Research for reporting this issue.​
WebCore - Visiting a malicious website may allow cross-site scripting
In Safari, properties of certain global objects are not cleared when navigating to a new URL within the same window. By enticing a user to visit a maliciously crafted web page, an attacker may trigger the issue which may lead to cross-site scripting. This update addresses the issue by properly clearing global objects.​
WebKit - Look-alike characters in a URL could be used to masquerade a website
The International Domain Name (IDN) support and Unicode fonts embedded in Safari could be used to create a URL which contains look-alike characters. These could be used in a malicious web site to direct the user to a spoofed site that visually appears to be a legitimate domain. This update addresses the issue by through an improved domain name validity check.​
WebKit - Viewing a maliciously crafted web page may lead to arbitrary code execution
Description: Heap buffer overflows exist in the Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE) library used by the JavaScript engine in Safari. By enticing a user to visit a maliciously crafted web page, an attacker may trigger the issue, which may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of JavaScript regular expressions.

Safari reset

I don't use the Safari 3 Beta and after the update Safari 2 restored to default settings. Not a big problem but just an inconvenience.

Yay! Samba fixes!

I was just in the process of figuring out how to manually update the samba install on my work server (we definitely need that Windows sharing), but this is a whole lot easier.

Glad I waited a few hours now.

Safari Beta 3.03 is also up now. It includes "security and stability" improvements.
Safari 3.0 for Windows: Displayed everything very nice and quick on Windows, except fonts. No fonts for me whatsoever. Unusable.

Safari 3.0.1 for Windows: When started, displays about one quarter of a window, then crashes. Doesn't get far enough to use the bug reporting feature.

I'll try 3.03 then.

allot needs to be done to safari beta 3 for OS X. i kept running into system lockups when browsing youtube with beta 3 on OS X.

i dont know why the windows version only got the improved stability and not the OS X version.

yea safari beta 3 does allot better displaying web pages than safari 2 does. but the issues in beta 3 make it where i will stay with 2 till beta 3 is final.

Apple needs to kick Adobes but to make them fix flash for Mac and get it optimized. its just stupid on how bloated and slow it is compared to the PC's version.

NOO!! A security update that requires the buggy 10.4.10? This is unacceptable!

lol Good job in splitting the updates into "iPhone" and "the rest", but it's interesting that there are only 19 comments posted (now 20) under other updates and 189 for the iPhone... :D

I haven't done it yet - I'll wait a few days, just as I'm also waiting to do the update for the airport for my MBP.
I starting to become skeptical on the stability of some of these updates - after 10.4.10 did some tricky things, I don't know what to expect anymore.
I'm glad these updates are out, though.

Before when I had my MBP sitting right in front of my FiOS wifi router it always had a full signal. Since the airport update it now varies back and forth between full and one bar below full. Is this just a more accurate read of the signal or is the airport now not receiving as as strong a signal? I hope it's not the latter. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :mad:

Well, Safari 3.0.3 still won't work on my WinXP machine. It still asks for me to log into the WebURLProtectionSpaceProxyHTTP.

I wonder if Apple is ever going to fix this problem... :(

Yeah, all the Safari bugs I read about, and there are people who still think that Apple is gonna release the whole OS for PCs... that seems like crazy talk to me.
