Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently we've seen the releases of both Ubuntu 8.04 'Hardy Heron' as well as Fedora 9 'Sulphur', to mostly positive reviews. PCWorld Australia decided to pitch these two popular Linux distributions against one another.

or for OSX for that matter, just don't run Safari

In a world where unauthorized remote access to OS is getting harder, it's well known that the trend is to use cross-plateform application as an attack vector (firefox, flash, VLC, "you-name-it"...).

Could you please give an example of a real threat (no proof of concept) concerning Safari that haven't been patched already ?

Sure enough, Safari is no more bullet-proof than other web browsers, but please explain how it is more insecure than say firefox ?

AFAIK Firefox users are not safer than Safari users...

The fact that some coward modded me down for no reason clearly demonstrates my previous statement is correct! ;)

Thank you anonymous coward !

That has to be the worst piece of reasoning I've ever seen.

There were a couple of reports about bugs in safari that could give hackers access to the OS. I like safari but I don't trust, after all the first jailbreak for the iphone used a simple buffer overun to access the iphone internals from the browser (using a tiff image).
