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

Interesting thing to think about ...

Does it benefit Apple to have an insecure browser on Windows? If the millions of clueless computer users get owned will 
they be able to understand that it was Safari's fault or just that their windows box got compromised and now they have 
grief and financial loss.

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.

There is a URL protocol handler command injection vulnerability in
Safari for Windows that allows you to execute shell commands with
arbitrary arguments. This vulnerability can be triggered without user
interaction simply by visiting a webpage. The full advisory and a
working Proof of Concept exploit can be found at


Page is dead but sound like old stuff reported years ago:

just that they fixed it at the helper level not at safari level (well it
was the right thing to do!). but then they prolly forgot about it and
released safari for windows. ^ ^
this said its kinda nothing special to be able to read old advisory to
find this kind of bugs :) (and its the right thing to do, too!) 2hours
is even long :D
