Update on the IE7 Security Flaw

According to Microsoft it doesn’t have one. Apparently, the security issue that I talked about the other day is actually in Outlook Express but can be exploited through Internet Explorer.

That’s OK then…

    I don’t know about security flaws but it just keeps losing data when I switch tabs. Yet another example of Microsoft dumping a half baked product onto end users

    Hi David

    Thanks for your comment. Do you really think it is just Microsoft that is doing this? My most used applications probably consist of products from Microsoft, Adobe, Apple, Mozilla and Autodesk and all of them have plenty of bugs which are fixed/patched with varying degrees of frequency and efficiency. I think that by your measure all of these companies could be accused of dumping ‘half baked’ products onto end users. I think what differs between these companies is that there is a large portion of the nerd community that will jump on Microsoft at the drop of a hat, despite in many cases not even using Microsoft products.

    Have a look at George Ou’s post at http://blogs.zdnet.com/Ou/?p=352 which gives a comparison in security flaws over time between IE6 and Firefox 1.x. You never hear anyone complaining that Firefox is insecure and yet looking at the figures they have had their fair share of issues…
