Browser Vulnerabilities Abound Everywhere

Two vulnerabilities in the recent release of Safari 3.1 for Windows were uncovered last week and reported by Secunia.

Also, there was an interesting article in today's SANS Ouch newsletter, entitled From the Trenches, about how the web sites of smaller companies are at greater risk for exploitation. The article said small companies don't have the expertise to harden web servers and web applications to meet today's tough threats.

Interestingly, the article mentioned how even if your operating system has all its patches up-to-date, it can still be vulnerable due to exploits in Microsoft and Adobe products residing on the system. Keeping your application patches up to date is key, as well.
