While not yet present in Apple's Downloads section, our Windows-running PCs (yeah, we have those, too) have detected a new version of the Safari browser. Safari 3.2.2 for Windows addresses a potential security issue when accessing a maliciously crafted feed.
Windows users can download Safari 3.2.2 using the Apple Software Update application that was automatically installed the first time their PC got Apple software. The web browser has been patched to solve input validation problems with feed URLs, according to Apple, who credits Clint Ruoho of Laconic Security, Billy Rios of Microsoft, and Brian Mastenbrook for reporting the issues present in the Windows version of Safari.
While the contents of the Safari update are more complex, the Windows Software Update only says that “Safari 3.2 introduces protection from fraudulent phishing websites and better identification of online businesses” (pictured above). From Apple's Support section, the complete description of the Safari vulnerability (now patched in version 3.2.2) goes as follows:
Safari 3.2.2 for Windows
Available for: Windows XP or Vista
Impact: Accessing a maliciously crafted feed: URL may lead to arbitrary code execution
