Safari 5.1.4

  • Safari

    Available for: Windows 7, Vista, XP SP2 or later

    Impact: Look-alike characters in a URL could be used to masquerade a website

    Description: The International Domain Name (IDN) support in Safari could be used to create a URL which contains look-alike characters. These could be used in a malicious web site to direct the user to a spoofed site that visually appears to be a legitimate domain. This issue is addressed through an improved domain name validity check. This issue does not affect OS X systems.
