    Hi folks,

    There is another flaw in MS IE that they have issued a critical patch for.

    While I know many of us do not use IE you may want to install this patch as a safety feature. According to Tech Net your computer may be vulnerable by just having IE installed even if you are not using it.

    Here's a link about it.

    Or.... just follow the link in Asklepios's Sig!! :thumb:

    JSR,

    Trying other browsers is fine but just having IE installed on your system is enough to make you vulnerable to this flaw.

    Time to patch up!! :thumb:

    Windows Update also has a patch for a known Windows Media 9 flaw, just out.

    seems pretty typical to me... something 'critical' just about every few days.
    oh well... such is life with M$

    but it makes me glad I use Firebird, so I can avoid all the other IE problems ;)... even if I can't excape this one
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I'm aware of that, but since windows is on 90% + of the desktops out there it gets more of the attention

    There is a lawsuit coming up that expresses that same sentiment.

    A 50 yr old woman in LA is suing MS for shoddy workmanship in their software that allowed someone to steal her identity. She has asked that it be made into a class action suit.

    Microsoft Should Be Liable For Shoddy Security, Lawsuit Charges

    Should be interesting. hmm? :wow:
