Safari 4.0.2 released

Fire up Software Update, Apple just released Safari 4.0.2!

As usual, the release notes are extremely informative (laugh), stating:

This update is recommended for all Safari users and improves the stability of the Nitro JavaScript engine and includes the latest compatibility and security fixes.

Looking a the actual security announcement, this is is one update you're going to want to install. One of the security fixes addresses potential cross-site scripting attacks, via WebKit's handling of parent and top objects. The other fix addresses memory allocation for numeric character references, which if exploited, could allow arbitrary code execution or application termination after visiting a malicious site.

These issues affect Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista, so everyone, download your Safari updates!

As usual, you will have to restart your computer after installation.
