Apple today rolled out a new version of its web browser, Safari. The main changes in version 3.2 are security updates, which Apple kind of humorously lists as:
For the protection of our customers, Apple does not disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until a full investigation has occurred and any necessary patches or releases are available.
But one of these big security updates are new anti-phishing tools, reports AppleInsider. These features were initially being testing in Safari 3.0, but they were pulled before the final version launched with OS X Leopard.
Phishing is the process of attempting to get secure information out of users by masking it as something legitimate. Safari will now apparently be better at filtering sites that are known to do this and provide better alerts about it.
This update is not only available for the OS X operating system, but also for Windows XP as well.
