New Browser Flaw Out


Recommended Posts

Bob, you really love to prove that IE isn't the only piece of software in the world, meaning it's not the only thing prone to be attacked, don't you? :dance:

 

I'm glad this bug only crashes the browser instead of allowing dozens of spyware/malware/trojans to be installed... :dance:

LOL

 

Raul, Just keeping the balance as Rob says.

 

But this one also affects IE if I read the article correctly. It was confusing at first and seemed to be pointing away from IE. But I believe it said it also affected IE.

 

I am waiting for other articles on this to get a better picture.

Yeah, I know sometimes I'm a little too much "anti-microsoft" but that's just because I really had enough of the problems Windows and IE gave me. :\

 

PS - Bob, I was only kidding, I hope you didn't feel offended. :)

No offense taken over here Raul and hope you don't take any with my posts. Besides what my signature says I am not a MS diehard, I just a make living from MS :)

 

We're at a turning point and it will be interesting to watch in the coming years as MS's market shares slides downward. Once other company's start catching up they will start feeling the heat from users as they discover bugs, exploits. and "features" that were not intended to be there.

 

Looks like I'll need to get some Linux certs so I can stay employed the few years I have left till retirement :)

No offense taken here either, Bob :blink:

 

And yes, I agree, the coming years will be interesting ones. Either MS manages to get back to the top or gets dethroned, I'm sure the battle will be very interesting and perhaps even benefficial to the users. ;)

Until the affected browsers make a fix, you can just disable javascripting (for all but trusted sites at least) to keep yourself safe from exploitation of this particular flaw. I generally turn off all forms of active scripting for all sites not on my trusted list. This only rarely affects my browsing ability and keeps me safe from the vast majority of browser-spawned malicious code. ;)
