Can't someone just pick up a phonebook and get my phone number and address?

I have been avoiding Safari for reasons like this. I do agree that it is a sweet browser and all for Mac users, but it does have a lot of security flaws like this, and even though patches come out for it, people can still exploit it.

That's why I moved to Chrome, which has better security features than Safari. Plus, I don't even use autofill.

I thought this was behind us with 5.0.1 :/ For now I turned it off. But im hopeful Apple fixes this quick and this time, for real!

Still love my Safari though!
