Attention Mac owners. If you use Apple's default Safari Internet browser, it's time to update your software. The new update deals with some serious security flaws that could put your computer at risk.
The first fix deals with a memory corruption issue that could allow for remote code execution. Remotely executing code lets hackers run and download any kind of programs onto your computer like malware, ransomware and keyloggers.
The second issue involves a security problem that could give websites access to files on your computer.
Without the same-origin policy, one web page could read cookies (e.g. login cookies) set by another website, or steal private content (e.g. bank balances) displayed in another page or, in the most extreme case, read data from your local files.
