Safari security flaw
An alleged security issue in Mac OS X that could allow users to attack any Mac system with the software installed. [updated 12:05 pm ET]
Update: One MacNN reader, however, says that the flaw is no more than a bug: "It is a crashing bug, but certaily does not look line a security issue in any way, shape or form. A better way to write it would be: 'A maliciously constructed web page giving a preposterous rowspan in a table can cause the KHTML parser to crash.'" The reader says that a maliciously crafted HTML page would cause a large enough array to crash the application ("in true Unix fashion"), however, it is unclear if--or how--it could allow execution of arbitrary code."
