    Now this must be the news of 2010

    After nearly 10 years of unlimited patches, hotfixes and service
    Packs, IE is still a weak link in recent attacks on Google's systems.
    Either M$ is now threatened by Googles rise to prominence or IE is
    completely rubbish. Either way we should start taking instructions
    from the German government if this article is anything to go by.

    Is google's search engine more powerful than M$ Bing?

    Are you talking about this Security Release from Microsoft below which was
    published a day before yesterday which addresses this issue.

    For some years we've been deploying an applet which warns users if an
    iexplore.exe process is found running, with an unauthorized URL. If they
    don't heed the warning then IE is terminated and a log-entry made.

    Since we did that, service-calls to deal with malfunctioning desktops have
    literally halved.
