IE 7 Users, Protect Thyself
If you're still on IE 7 and running Vista, there's an interesting security anomaly you should be aware of, detailed in a Microsoft bulletin from this month. In it, Microsoft recommends that you run IE with the protected mode setting turned on to prevent a remote code execution attack. Even with this setting turned on, Microsoft said to still apply the patch.
Are you still in IE 7 mode? What's keeping you from upgrading to IE 8? Chime in at firstname.lastname@example.org.
