MSNBC/NBC NEWS: Apple security update shutters Snow Leopard and Windows users

Last week, Apple released the latest version of its Safari Web browser, patching more than 100 vulnerabilities. But if you’re running an older version of Mac OS X or any version of Windows, you’re in for some harsh luck.

Safari 6 is available only for the brand-new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and its predecessor, OS X 10.7 Lion, which itself is barely a year old.

Users of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, which as of June was running on nearly 40 percent of all Macs, apparently won’t be getting the upgrade.

As for Safari for Windows, Apple has removed all traces of it from its website.

A request to Apple for comment was not immediately returned.
