Safari 5.1 and Safari 5.0.6

  • CFNetwork

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

    Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to a cross-site scripting attack

    Description: In certain situations, Safari may treat a file as HTML, even if it is served with the 'text/plain' content type. This may lead to a cross-site scripting attack on sites that allow untrusted users to post text files. This issue is addressed through improved handling of 'text/plain' content.
