Apple on Thursday released an update for its Web browser,
Safari, bringing the latest version to 1.0 Beta 2 (v74).
Apple recommends the update for all Safari users as it improves how Safari validates the authenticity of websites that use SSL certificates. MacCentral reported earlier this week on how Safari doesn’t validate the Common Name of a SSL certificate.
The lack of validation made it possible to spoof SSL sites, so that you couldn’t trust the authenticity of an SSL site.
The new Safari beta is available via the Software Update Control panel or from
Apple’s Web site.
