And that's what BugTraq has to say about it.

DON'T CLICK THE LINKS IF YOU'RE RUNNING IE!

Ummmm

More and more evidence to start using mozilla, opera etc. As said in other posts, a fully patched IE is not going to help you.

:thumbsup:

I absolutely agree... IE has become very insecure nowadays, it is better to avoid it. Plus count all your EI patches and calculate how much disk space they have taken up...
:gasp:

I have calculated that various IE and Windows patches make approx. 10 MB in some three months. If not more...

Opera is for example around 17 MB. So why wasting your bandwidth? :scratchhead:
