Apple Safari for Windows Multiple Highly Critical Vulnerabilities reported

Some highly critical vulnerabilities and a security issue have been reported in Apple Safari for Windows prior to v3.1.2, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or to compromise a user’s system.  It concern a boundary error within the handling of BMP and GIF images and a security issue due to Safari automatically launching downloaded executable files from sites in a Internet Explorer 7 zone with the “Launching applications and unsafe files” option set to “Enable”, or sites in the Internet Explorer 6 “Local intranet” or “Trusted sites” zone.

Please update asap to Apple Safari Windows v3.1.2 for patching mentioned issues.
