Impact: Viewing a maliciously crafted BMP or GIF image may lead to information disclosure
Description: An out-of-bounds memory read may occur in the handling of BMP and GIF images, which may lead to the disclosure of memory contents.
Impact: Saving untrusted files to the Windows desktop may lead to the execution of arbitrary code
Description: An issue exists in how the Windows desktop handles executables. Saving an untrusted file to the Windows desktop may trigger the issue, and lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Web browsers are a means by which files may be saved to the desktop. To help mitigate this issue, the Safari browser has been updated to prompt the user prior to saving a download file. Also, the default download location is changed to the user's Downloads folder on Windows Vista, and to the user's Documents folder on Windows XP.
