Re: Safari for Windows, 0day URL protocol handler command injection

Apple released version 3 of their popular Safari web browser today,
with the added twist of offering both an OS X and a Windows version.
Given that Apple has had a lousy track record with security on OS X, in
addition to a hostile attitude towards security researchers, a lot of
people are expecting to see quite a number of vulnerabilities targeted
towards this new Windows browser. 

Joe Wilcox here at eWEEK is speculating, as are others, that Apple could
start bundling Safari with the Windows iTunes software
y_need_another_windows_browser.html). They have already done this with
QuickTime. Safari could develop installed base quickly that way.
