Having just updated to Mac OS X 10.6.8, I was angry that Safari had been updated and is completely broken ....but that is another issue altogether.

 

It was whilst searching for a solution to Safari 5.1 problems that I came accross a breach to the Apple Discussions site and therefore Apple.com by a hacker known as Tiger-m@te (search for tiger-mate bangladesh will provide some background on his'her notariety).

 

I searched in Google: 'safari 5.1' + 'broken' and got the following:

 

Safari 5.1 'Broken' in OSX.6.8?: Apple Support Communities

 

 

The 4th link 'Safari 5.1 completely....' has the address https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3190534?start=0&tstart=0, but the page redirects to

 

http://chimac.net/2011/07/20/safari-5-1-completely-broken-under-lion-apple-suppo rt-communities/necko:classified1request-methodGETresponse-headHTTP/1.1 200 OK

 

....activating weird window behaviour, the pronouncement "Hacked" and some details of tiger-m@ate (though I've not clicked on any of the links).

 

....there was also a redirect to http://www.fotonons.ru/images/17.03.11/bytigermte.jpgrequest-methodGETresponse-h eadHTTP/1.1 200 OK

 

(note the .ru address !!!)

 

Someone has already posted a video of the type of thing you can expect :

I do not know whether tiger-m@te is just showing off or whether there's an attempt to steal information.

 

I will inform Apple directly, but please JUST BE AWARE, AND BE SAFE


apple.com, security warning
