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.

"Even that's a bit off, I think. It's more like being engulfed in flames because your car had a poorly built fuel tank, and the company wanted to charge you hundreds of dollars to fix it.


MS isn't trying to make money by fixing IE6. They've told companies to upgrade to a newer version.

Which, if you're running Windows 2000, requires what, now? An upgrade to a new OS; i.e., spending money!

This is another case of cheapskate companies refusing to spend money on old systems.


Because Windows 2000 remains such a sorry OS?
