Microsoft Tries to Patch up IE loophole
From merely issuing an advisory to taking concrete steps to patch up IE vulnerability with the release of an emergency security update, Microsoft is shutting down all formerly unknown rat holes through which the recent attack from China exposed. However, what the ordinary computer user would like to know is if IE is a safe browser? Better stated, has it ever been a safe browser? And for how long has it been unsafe?
Well, no other company but Microsoft can answer these questions correctly. There has been conflicting reports by various analysts as to who exactly is to blame. Verisign's iDefense was quick to heap blame on Adobe PDF only to apologize two days later. Computer users using more vulnerable versions of internet explorer ( i.e., IE6 and IE7) should search for the newly release updates and make sure they turn on Data Execution Prevention on their browsers. IE8 users do not need to turn on DEP as it is on by default on that version of Internet Explorer.
