On Wednesday, Apple released the latest version of its Safari for OS X 10.9 Mavericks OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion for its users. These new versions are able to patch a couple of bags that have something to do with a WebKit problem that potentially endangers a user’s computer by running malicious sites to run code. If you have encountered the problem, downloading the latest update can help you get rid of it.
These Apple WebKit flaws execute arbitrary code on a host computer once a malicious website has been visited. The result of which, is that it causes the browser to crash unexpectedly. Another issue that has arisen to this problem is how unicode characters in URLs have been handled. As such, a maliciously crafted URL is able to send out false postMessage origins. In the process, the flaw overcomes the receiver’s origin check.
To get rid of both issues, Apple has worked extensively on enhancing its decoding and encoding procedures. You can now get rid of this problem by downloading the latest Safari 7.0.4 and 6.1.4 versions for free via Software Update. This is a great way you can ensure the safety of your browser once again.
