Apple has just updated its Safari browser.

Flash Player now sandboxed under Safari on Mac OS X

Adobe has worked with Apple to sandbox Flash Player under Safari in Mac OS X, restricting the ability of attackers to exploit any vulnerabilities they might find in the browser plug-in.

"With this week's release of Safari in OS X Mavericks, Flash Player will now be protected by an OS X App Sandbox," Peleus Uhley, platform security strategist at Adobe, said Wednesday in a blog post. A sandbox is a mechanism that enforces certain restrictions on how an application interacts with the underlying operating system.

Apple posts security update for Safari browser

Apple has posted a security update for the Windows and OS X versions of its Safari web browser.

The company said that the Safari 5.1.4 update would address a number of vulnerabilities in the browser itself and its WebKit engine. Among the fixes in the update is a patch which addresses dozens of memory corruption vulnerabilities in WebKit which, if exploited, could allow an attacker to remotely execute code on a targeted system.
