IE7 already has Cross-domain barriers

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/features.mspx

Cross-domain barriers:

Internet Explorer 7 helps to prevent the script on webpages from interacting with content from other domains or windows. This enhanced safeguard gives you additional protection against malware by helping to prevent malicious websites from manipulating flaws in other websites or causing you to download undesired content or software.

Rare Mac Trojan exploits Apple vuln

every OS has virus: Linux and Mac users are not immune

A virus is just a piece of code running into the system in order to perform malicious activities, so every operating system would have a virus because in every OS you have executables, programs and processes. For this reason Linux and Mac users are NOT immune to virus.

MS patch system poses 'significant risk', say researchers

suc
Thumb Down

this research is pure FUD because every OS would be affected

this research is pure FUD because every OS would be affected, NOT just only Microsoft. Open Source software would be also more vulnerable, because you can exploit the flaws just after you compared the source code.

Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 delayed

suc
Alert

this news is pure FUD! NO delay!!!

SP1 is not offered ONLY if you've installed a different language using the language pack.

http://windowsvistablog.com/blogs/windowsvista/archive/2008/03/03/language-packs-and-windows-vista-sp1.aspx

"PCs running Windows Vista Ultimate with any of the other Language Packs installed will not be offered Windows Vista SP1 through Windows Update until they are released. Once the Language Packs are released, Windows Vista SP1 will then be offered for installation. "

Firefox 2.0.0.12 is still vulnerable to directory trasversal flaw!

Firefox 2.0.0.12 is still vulnerable to directory trasversal:

"don't patch vulnerabilities

for fifty percent, take the time and fix the cause. Because directory

traversal through plugins is all nice and such, we don't need it. We

can trick Firefox itself in traversing directories back. I found

another information leak that is very serious because we are able to

read out all preferences set in Firefox, or just open or include about

every file stored in the Mozilla program files directory, and this

without any mandatory settings or plugins."

Vista attacked by 13-year-old virus

suc

the virus doesn't work after Windows has been started

The virus is only able to spread to further disks when Windows [itself] is not yet started,…the virus can infect further disks at boot time, but not after Windows has been started.
