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.

How is it naive to expect Microsoft to support a product they are still selling? Microsoft made the choice for IE 7 and IE 8 to not be backwards compatible with IE 6. And while the CIO's may have made poor choices, Microsoft are the ones who control the technology. I am not saying that the companies involved aren't also to blame, but Microsoft deserves most of the criticism here. They aren't even fully disclosing the dangers of the bug from what I can see.
