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.

People are still paying to get security patches and so it is not the fault of the users when they get hacked.


They are when they are told by the company that they are putting themselves at risk when they use IE6 to surf the web.

Who doesn't know that IE6 is a massive security risk? Google should have been the last company to be compromised by something like. Don't make excuses for cheapskate companies.
