Guy Brian has discovered a new Safari vulnerability which affects Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) users who haven’t changed default feed reader preferences.
This vulnerability allows phishing sites to silently read all the user data from hard drive without him knowing that.
There is however a workaround for Safari users on Windows OS.
Open Safari and select Preferences… from the Safari menu.
Choose the RSS tab from the top of the Preferences window.
Click on the Default RSS reader pop-up and select an application other than Safari.
Apple has not made information available on when a fix for this issue will be released.
