Microsoft urges Windows users to shut down Safari

On Friday May 30, Microsoft issued a security bulletin advising users that have installed Safari for Windows to discontinue use of the browser until a patch can be developed and deployed. It seems there is what is being called a "blended threat" of a vulnerability between Safari and the Windows operating system.
This threat can allow an unauthorized user to install programs without the knowledge or permission of the computer owner. Microsoft's official position is: "Restrict use of Safari as a Web browser until an appropriate update is available from Microsoft and/or Apple".
Just one more reason to use Firefox, in my opinion.
