How many more of these are there to fix?
Has anyone been counting the number fixed so far?
Will MS ever say, 'enough already!' and re-write the whole things. At the moment IE seems more akin to a pile of steaming dog-poo.
Microsoft is preparing to close a wide-open security hole in Internet Explorer - a vulnerability state-backed spies are exploiting to mine organisations across Asia. A update to fix the flaw is among four critical patches Redmond has lined up for the October edition of Patch Tuesday, due next week. Versions 6 through to 11 of …
"I have. IE has had fewer holes than have been in Chrome, Firefox or Safari ever since IE7 onwards....."
And how many FF vulnerabilities are serious enough to allow a rootkit installation like this IE vuln. is merely by browsing a web-page containing a .jpg ?

To make it even more fun, you had to, HAD TO, have the latest Java updates or it still wouldn't work. Only problem with that was that the Java updates BROKE some in-house specialized software that, wait for it... handled certain accounting subroutines. Namely, the one where you first gathered your data to, wait for it again... send to the bank.
Getting IE to work properly is like Bullwinkle trying to pull a rabbit out of his hat.
And it’s funny because nobody uses IE any more, do they? What? Some moron in IT still thinks it’s easier to manage?
What I can’t understand is why a vulnerability that’s been known exploited for a month is called zero-day. Shouldn’t it be called –30 day?
