Apple Fixes Safari for Old Flaws

The Safari 7.0.4 and 6.1.4 updates debuted on May 21, providing users with 21 security updates. All 21 of the security issues impact Safari's WebKit rendering engine and are various forms of memory corruption-related issues. The new Safari updates follow Apple's Safari 7.0.3 release in April, which also had a strong Google influence.

Among the fixed issues are a pair that date back to 2013: CVE-2013-2875 and CVE-2013-2927. The CVE-2013-2875 vulnerability was first patched by Google in its Chrome 28 release back in July 2013. The CVE-2013-2927 vulnerability was first patched by Google in October 2013 with the Chrome 30 release.
