Mac OS X A serious security flaw in Mac OS X opens machines with Apple's Safari Web browser to hijack by outsiders, Secunia has warned. The vulnerability and 'proof of concept' code to exploit it were released on Wednesday as part of the Month of Apple Bugs project. It affects Mac OS X 10.4.8, the most recent version of Apple's operating system and, possibly, previous versions, security researcher LMH said in the posting on MOAB's Web site.

Apple really should've released an update that removes the ‘Open safe files automatically after downloading’ option months ago. Everybody clued switches it off right away, but the rest of the world is none the wiser. Leaving it there's a Microsoft-esque mistake, really.
