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.

No use telling him. Judging by this write up he is on MS payroll.

First of all IE6 is still officially supported by MS. People are still paying to get security patches and so it is not the fault of the users when they get hacked.

So:
_It is Microsofts fault._

2. The exploit works on IE7 on XP and Vista (not all setups, but still)

3. This article makes it sound like the good advancements in Vista regarding security cure all potential holes.

_They do not._

In conclusion:
This thing needs updates or should be deleted. Security is serious stuff for experts to write about.
