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.

They have an exploit for IE8 with DEP enabled.

This makes this whole article totally wrong and downright dangerous, because just because there is no publically available code does not mean that bad guys can't figure it out. Took that company only a few days.
