Security research group Secunia is warning all Mac OS X (news - web sites) users about what it calls a "highly critical" vulnerability. The vulnerability, Secunia says, affects all Mac OS X users who surf the Web using either Apple Computer's Safari Web browsers or Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

Secunia originally published its advisory Monday, but upgraded it because of new exploits--small applications used to attack software flaws--that the firm became aware of Tuesday.

According to Secunia's advisory, two security flaws can be used by malicious Web sites to remotely access at-risk systems. The security holes have been confirmed on systems running Mac OS X with either Safari 1.2.1 or Internet Explorer 5.2, Secunia says.
