US-Cert has issued an security alert for Safari running on OS X to warn of a vulnerability in the browser that could allow the placement and running of malicious code on a computer.

They advise:

Turn off "Open safe files after downloading" feature

* To turn off "Open safe files after downloading" feature in Safari,
first choose "Preferences" from the Safari menu. Next, uncheck the
option "Open 'safe' files after downloading."

A second US-Cert Alert (SA06-062A) reports Apple has released a security patch for this and other sundry vulnerabilities:

" Mac OS X, Safari web browser, and other products are affected by
multiple vulnerabilites. Apple has released Security Update
2006-001 to address these vulnerabilities, the most serious of
which may allow a remote attacker to place and run malicious code
on your computer."
