Symantec reports a third vulnerability has been found in Apple's Mac OS X operating system. The critical flaw affects Safari and it's the third vulnerability found in less than a week.
Discovered by Michael Lehn, a graduate student and research assistant at the University of Ulm in southern Germany, the flaw affects Apple's Safari Web browser and could allow attackers to disable a Mac computer after tricking users into accessing a phony Internet site containing malicious code.

Apple has confirmed that it is aware of the problem and has indicated that it is working on a fix "so that this doesn't become something that could affect customers."
