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.

So you are the security expert now? I found this article to be really weak and fanboish. That is why I started to a quick Google search.

And well, I hate to break it to you but IE7 has been cracked:

And it is looking bad for IE8:

And that is just one day after the release of the first exploit, once security is breached you get new attack vectors and new exploits are possible. It is not like DEP etc. always migitates everything 100%. It just helps.
