    [news=http://www.download-it-free.com/ie/images/logo.gif]Microsoft may rush out a security update for Internet Explorer to fix a flaw that is now being exploited to attack Windows systems, security companies say.

    Computer code that demonstrates how a hacker can use the flaw to take over a PC was released onto the Net on Thursday. At least two such exploits were made public, and one has now been adapted to attack systems, Monty IJzerman, the manager of security content at McAfee, said on Friday.

    "This exploit code is being used in the wild in malware," or malicious software, IJzerman said. "I expect other attacks to be prepared and to be out there over the next few days."

    I don't understand... M$ pushes back both Vista and Office 2007, but they hurry their ass' off to push out their worst program, full of bugs and easily exploitable...

    Do you think that Vista or Office 12 will be any different?
    I take that they are aiming for stricter security in the new versions,
    but you still have M$ being the biggest target for the fucktards of the world.
    It's not like, upgrading to Vista will render anti-virus, anti-spyware, hot-fixes, etc. useless.

    Relax Damn.
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
