IE Will Never Be Perfect

Last week, two IE7 problems were reported. Microsoft disputes one and agrees with the other. One hole could ease phishing attacks (anti-phishing is one of the big new features in the new Firefox). The other hole has nothing to do with IE7, but rather is an Outlook vulnerability, Microsoft points out.

These reports represent a new era where we'll all be talking about the security of Vista, IE7 and Office 2007. Let's all hope the issues are fewer and less critical than they've been with the older tools.
