Never trust version x.0 of anything... always wait for patch 1.

It would be faster and cheaper for Microsoft to offer hackers $5,000 for every security hole found during beta testing. It would be the next best thing to having an open source process.

It's a vuln in Outlook Express. It has nothing in particular to do with IE7. As noted, it was found years ago, and verified in IE6 in April. The fact that it shows up in IE7 only means that the proper place to patch it is in Outlook Express or some shared DLL.

I dislike Microsoft, and their products, and only use them when I have to. But geez, calling this a flaw in IE7 is simply innaccurate.

I've been using IE 7 beta for a while now and I like it, escept that for some reason, some of my staock trading software sometimes crashes because of IE 7 according to the stock trading program.

I like the tab feature a lot. I don't use Outlook for mail.

And,...Mac people,..If you are running some new Intel Core Duo version of a Mac and are booted and running Windows (or Windoze as the Mac people like to call it) on the Mac, can it get a virus? Would just the Windows software get the virus or the entire machine? Is this the right question?
