Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

IE runs plugins in the same process as the renderer, so it can't currently do the 64-bit/32-bit mix.


Strange, I thought I caught a glimpse of a "FlashHelper" (or similarly named) process last time I used Windows 7. It must be used for some other purpose then, I guess.
