Apple's Safari 4.03 update

Apple on Tuesday released Safari 4.03, an update to its cross-platform browser. The company says the "update is recommended for all Safari users and includes improvements to stability, compatibility and security including, (1) stability improvements for webpages that use the HTML 5 video tag; (2) fixes an issue that prevented some users from logging into; and (3) fixes an issue that could cause web content to be displayed in greyscale instead of color."

The latest version includes security fixes that can prevent unexpected application termination, arbitrary code execution, automated services from putting a maliciously crafted website into the user's Top Sites. The security fixes also impedes unknown plug-ins from accessing sensitive information and stops malicious websites from directing users to a "spoofed site" that appears to be a legitimate domain.

The update is 40.5MB and available via Software Update and from Apple's website.
