Ho hum; another day, another revelation of crippling security flaws in Internet Explorer. This particular story is fun because of the back and forth it contains between the consultants who discovered the problem, and the MSFT flack who calls them irresponsible for telling people about it. “The most effective way to ensure the safety of the greatest number of Microsoft customers is to discuss security vulnerabilities only after users can be offered remediation,” says Microsoft spokesperson Rick Miller. Actually, I’d think the most effective way to ensure those users’ safety would be for them to switch to OS X or Linux.
