Apple has released Safari 7.0.5 for users of OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Safari 6.1.5 for users of 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion, both of which fix multiple memory corruption issues existing in WebKit. Additionally, the security note for these updates identifies patches for a spoofing issue that existed in the handling of URLs (fixed via improved encoding of URLs) and dragging a URL from a maliciously crafted Web site to another window (fixed via improved validation of dragged resources). Both updates are available only through Software Update. (Free, 10.9+/10.7–10.8)
