Internet Explorer Microsoft researchers are experimenting with an automatic code zapper for the company's Internet Explorer Web browser. Researchers at the company have completed work on a prototype framework called BrowserShield that promises to allow IE to intercept and remove, on the fly, malicious code hidden on Web pages, instead showing users safe equivalents of those pages.

I don't understand why is everyone attacking MS and their actions. I personaly don't favour MS but when someone is right, I do admit it. Looks like they get attacked either way regardless whether **they are doing **something** or not doing something about their security issues. E.g: when there were not any updates for IE until IE7

Also, if you trully undertstand things, you will know that the more user friendly something is, the more vulnerable is to attacks and security flaws so there is nothing surprising here. Yes, Linux is secure but it is not as user friendly as Windows. Even MacOS X has security issues and we all know it is a Unix/BSD...
