Apple is somewhat famous for the security of its Max OS X operating system and other applications. Apple even plays up this advantage in some of its marketing campaigns. Many Windows users have found themselves drawn to the Apple Safari browser rather than Internet Explorer.

Microsoft has issued a warning on a security flaw it has found in the Safari browser that allows a so-called “Carpet-bombing” flaw to open windows up to malicious attacks. When using Safari vulnerability with how Vista and XP handles executable files on the desktop can be exploited.

The exploitation can allow malicious users to litter the Windows desktop with executable files containing malicious code. Microsoft issued a security advisory last week and according to IT PRO reports say that Apple doesn’t see the issue as being as significant at Microsoft does.
