Internet Explorer Ah, the security vulnerability that was used in the Google attack. It's been around the internet about a million times now, and even governments have started advising people to move away from Internet Explorer. As is usually the case, however, the internet has really blown the vulnerability out of proportion. I'll get right to it: if your machine and/or network has been compromised via this vulnerability, then you most likely had it coming. No sympathy for you.

Windows 2000 still can be "fixed" :)

By the way, I left Windows 2000 off the chart since it's no longer sold. In case you're curious: yes, IE6 on Windows 2000 is exploitable. Sadly, there's no fix because you can't upgrade to newer versions of IE.

Which simply means users of Windows 2000 must choose a different browser entirely now.
