Apple Safari contains a race condition when handling HTTP redirection when updating pages. This can allow a cross-domain violation.
Note that this vulnerability is reported to only be in the Safari 3 beta, which is available for Mac OS X 10.4.9, Windows XP, and Vista.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page, an HTML email message, or an email attachment), an attacker may be able to execute script or obtain full access to content in a different domain. The impact is similar to that of a cross-site scripting vulnerability. This includes the ability to spoof or modify web content, access website information such as cookies, or retrieve data from an encrypted HTTPS connection. For a more detailed description of the impact of cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, please see CERT Advisory CA-2000-02.
