Apple has pushed out an update for Safari for Mac today that addresses a couple of security issues with WebKit.
The update applies to Safari on OS X Yosemite, Mavericks, and Mountain Lion, clocking in at version 8.0.6, 7.1.6, and 6.2.6, respectively. Here’s the full breakdown of the issues these updates address:
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description: Multiple memory corruption issues existed in WebKit. These issues were addressed through improved memory handling.
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may compromise user information on the filesystem
Description: A state management issue existed in Safari that allowed unprivileged origins to access contents on the filesystem. This issue was addressed through improved state management.
The updates should hit the Mac App Store and be ready for download relatively soon.
