      There have been rumours of this vulnerability for a couple of weeks now floating around on some of the more credible security newsgroups & forums (fora?)

      Nice to know there are still loads of unpatched code vulnerabilities in XPSP2/IE6SP1 - meaning lots of juicy zero-day exploits around for years to come no doubt.

      Must give every poor sod still using 9X & NT a warm, fuzzy feeling to know that MS isn't even bothering to look at vulnerabilities for their platforms any more...

      Makes you look forward that much more to Vista...or should it be called holey Vista?!!

      I'm more interested in reports about patches nowadays than addons....that tells you something! :dry

      I dont think vista is gonna be that secure when it comes out, its gonna take some time for the vulnerabilities to be found and patched before its "secure".
