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.

And hacked websites are all over the web, there were even banking sites that had exploit code embedded. If you surf the web with an insecure browser that is used by billions of people you are at risk PERIOD

lol and all it would take is a few mod_security rules to block such crap from exploiting banking sites in the first place.
