Flaws found in Safari browser for Windows

An Argentinian security researcher has discovered two flaws in Apple's Safari for Windows browser. Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian said the vulnerabilities could allow hackers to remotely take control of a victim's computer. He described the most serious flaw as a vulnerability in the Safari 3.1 browser for Windows which allows a hacker to "falsify the web address and enter another page or content".

This essentially means that even though you see a trusted URL in the browser address bar, the web page could be displaying unauthorized content that could put your PC at risk.
