Zero Day Bug Fixed Safari for Windows 3.0.1 now available

Finally Apple has reacted fast and has tried to fix most of the zero-day nightmare with a number of exploitable vulnerabilities. Just days after its beta release of Safari 3 for Windows, Apple has now rushed out version 3.0.1 to fix three security flaws. The fixed problems only affect Windows and not the Mac OS X release.

The 3.0.1 update patches a bug that could lead to Safari running arbitrary commands via CMD.EXE, a denial of service crash due to memory corruption, and a flaw that could lead to a cross-site scripting attack. Windows XP and Vista users can download Safari 3.0.1[or build 3.522 Beta] from FileHippo.

Only time will tell where this browser is really headed too - Since it's got loads of bad reviews in the Windows Front too. The problems are with the clarity of the webpage displayed [Anti-Aliasing not being perfect] to very slow loading of popular websites.
