From InfoWorld: Unlike the Nov. 13 update, which added anti-phishing protection and patched 11 security vulnerabilities -- more than two-thirds of them critical -- today's minor upgrade was for unspecified "stability improvements," according to a terse notice on the Apple Web site.
Although the notice included a link to the "Apple security update" page -- where the company normally provides pointers to security advisories associated with such updates -- there was no listing there for Safari 3.2.1.
A security researcher who in the past has taken Apple to task for its unpredictable patching schedule did so again Monday. "It would be too much of an understatement to say 'more of the same'," said Andrew Storms , director of security operations at vendor nCircle Network Security, in an instant message. "But in doing so, it also represents the lethargic approach we've come to expect with Apple updates.
"If only they would put some of that creative spirit we love about Apple into their security development life-cycle," Storms added.
