Windows 7 flaw puts Safari surfers in danger

 


According to the security firm Secunia, Windows 7 is housing a major flaw for Safari for Windows users. It is said to to be critical, because it allows a remote attacker to run malicious code at kernel level. This is done thorough a memory corruption flaw. It allows a remote attacker to target a system and exploit it to run malicious code at kernel level. It uses Safari by loading a rigged iframe- a part of a webpage that loads content from another webpage. For now, there is no effective solution to patch this exploit. So it is recommended that you run a strong Anti-Virus or Anti-Malware program.
