Safari 3.0.1 Public Beta for Windows is now available and addresses the following issues in Safari 3 Public Beta:

CVE-ID: CVE-2007-3186 Available for: Windows XP or Vista Impact: Visiting a malicious website may lead to arbitrary code execution Description: A command injection vulnerability exists in the Windows version of Safari 3 Public Beta. By enticing a user to visit a maliciously crafted web page, an attacker can trigger the issue which may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional processing and validation of URLs. This does not pose a security issue on Mac OS X systems, but could lead to an unexpected termination of the Safari browser.

This issue does not affect Mac OS X systems.

CVE-ID: CVE-2007-2391 Available for: Windows XP or Vista Impact: Visiting a malicious website may allow cross-site scripting Description: A race condition in Safari 3 Public Beta for Windows may allow cross site scripting. Visiting a maliciously crafted web page may allow access to JavaScript objects or the execution of arbitrary JavaScript in the context of another web page.
