Serious Security Issue Found in Safari

A bug found in Safari’s AutoFill feature can allow a malicious website to gather personal information from a users address book card — more specifically: first name, last name, work place, city, state, and email address. There is a published proof of concept exploit for the bug that can be found here. We suggest Safari users navigate to: Preferences > Auto-fill, and uncheck “Use info from my Address Book card”
