Latest IE Cumulative Patch Broken?

By TS | Thomas
Sep 8, 2003
  1. http-equiv has proved that the MS03-032 Security Bulletin from Microsoft fails to close the "Object Data" vulnerability. This test has been updated to use the latest exploit code as described by http-equiv & GreyMagic.

    Would you like to know more? 2 words - Mozilla Firebird (Yes, or Opera then :)). It seems rather than fixing the root of the problem, Microsoft are merely patching for a single known exploit of the problem, something which seems to be well known as regards DSO exploits & Microsoft attempts to patch them - one at a time (Pretty sure its DSO anyway).

    MYIE

    MYIE has the browsing experience. Too bad it uses the IE engine and security flaws.

    What Per said. I rarely have to use IE for compatibility with sites anymore. I love my Opera 7 browser... :D
