    Criticism?

    I don't see why the M$ spokesman criticised the researcher. I think the bugs should be made public since that usually gets M$ to fix them faster. There are bugs that were present since Win95 and were still in WinXP that were only fixed after all this time when someone publically posted them. I think what should happen is Microsoft should be criticised for not taking proactive actions to began patching these problems before they are publically posted. They should use some of that $40 billion in cash they have and do something useful with it. Like re-write windows from the ground up.

    Plastic Memory

    Thats kinda disappointing, they make it sound like they invented some better kind of RAM, but its actually data storage, like a next gen CD replacement. Oh well still cool I guess.

    Don't be an knee-jerk

    Don't be an knee-jerk a******. You heard me right. Sure, I am no fan of MS but really, what's the last attack you know of that was made on IE?

    A question along the lines of
    "What was the last attack you know of that was made on MacOS(X)"
    didn't stop people from criticizing Apple for the recent vulnerabilities
    exposed regarding Jaguar, now did it?

    the truth

    Just look at the historical records of these security issues on windows,linux and os x and you come to the conclusion that the pc platform is simply insecure. Lawsuits and regulation will occur. I guess the industry had its chance.

    Last Attack on IE?

    Who cares about the last attack on IE - IE is another one of Microsoft's attacks on the world.

    Attack on IE

    Attacks on IE are more widespread than you think. Downloading questionable code without letting the user know what's going on, resetting of homepages, enabling mousetraps, etc, etc.

    I use Mozilla on the PC and Safari on the Mac. Whenever I must use Infernalnet Explorer, I'm amazed at the amount of popups you get. I'm sure grateful for Moz/Netscape/Safari's great popup blockers!

    What we really need...

    is to figure out a way to make data storage out of fluff. Then we'll be onto something.
