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.

Any person or company stupid enough to still be using IE deserves everything that they get.

No sympathy from here.

It's only due to the competition from the likes of Firefox and Chrome that MS have got off their backsides and done *anything at all* to IE.
Looks like they haven't done enough though, and it's very unlikely that anything that they do will ever be enough.

Given that IE is (slowly) declining in its market share, the message might actually be starting to get through. "I.E. bad, others better".
