The new Safari 7.0.3 for Mavericks fixes 27 vulnerabilities.
Apple has released a security update for the Safari browser for Mavericks on Mac OS, fixingl the bugs in the browser’s WebKit browser engine and several other programmes.
The new Safari 7.0.3 for Mavericks fixes 27 vulnerabilities, 26 of which could initiate remote code execution, while the 27th would let programme executing arbitrary code to interpret arbitrary files despite sandbox limitations.
With the latest update, Mac users can uncheck a box that notifies ‘Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications’, which disables all incoming push efforts.
The update also patches an issue that reportedly blocks the push notification receipt, while also addresses a problem that causes the premature loading of a webpage when typing a search term into the address field, credit card auto fill compatibility and several other security concerns.
Apple has also added support for webpages with new top-level domains including ‘.cab’ and ‘.clothing’, enabling the browser to directly move to a webpage rather than starting a web search.
