"In researching the latest IE security disaster, I am across
this article. Date: just over a year ago. Subject: Major flaw
revealed in Internet Explorer; users urged to switch. Microsoft
response: "cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw".
Well exactly how many flaws does it take? How serious do those
flaws need to be?
"Now fast forward to today. The headline is the same. Again. The
only thing that has changed is Microsoft's response - instead of
"it's only one flaw", they say "it's only in one very old version
of IE" - which is a sly way of implying that it is the users own
fault. Never mind that independent experts have said that it exists
in IE 7 and IE 8."
