Safari 3.1.2 for Windows

Apple on Thursday unveiled a new security update rolled into Safari 3.1.2 for Windows. Which offers users protection against vulnerabilities with the imaging engine, file saving, and malicious code execution. Users could have been affected by maliciously crafted BMP or GIF files, which could allow assailants to learn what is in active memory at any given time. Safari 3.1.2 for Windows is available through Apple Software Update, as well as the company's support page.

Both Safari and Webkit have a number of optimizations regarding arbitrary code executions, resulting from file saves or visiting a maliciously crafted website.
