OK, targeted attacks. Any info you care to share, like what is the website that is malicious.?
Yep, lots of flak for Microsoft again for an unpatched unknown vuln, and yet no real real antipathy for the real culprit, the author of the malware.
Can I ask, one more time, when will you see the situation for what it really is.?
I think you will find that any version of IE or any version of any Microsoft product actually does do what it was designed to do. The problem lies elsewhere than in Microsofts hands alone.
Please focus your attention on the real problem. 1000 anti Microsoft words do not dilute the problem, they just show a lack of comprehension on your part. Even if you say that you are just representing the facts, I question your bias, the reality here is a malicious attack by perpetrators as yet unknown, not Microsofts failure to address the problem. If there is a problem, it is your failure to represent fairly, the nature of the attack. Many people would like to know what,where,when and how the attack takes place, not just that Microsoft haven't yet fixed a problem beyond their control in the fact of deployment and method of attack.
I am sure Microsoft will rectify the code that allows the malicious attack by the perpetrators once all the analysis has been done, but it isn't anything that can be planned for in that much of a specific manner. Unlike your bias which is premeditated and constantly on show.
So just to balance out your bias, here for those actually interested in security, are the latest for Linux, and that's just so far this week, by my calendar, in my part of the world, there is three more days to go. And Mozilla haven't exactly worked overtime to fix their bugs either, so switching browser isn't a going option really either.
