    Another IE / OE Flaw

    They just keep coming.....

    http://news.com.com/2100-1001-976206...t=dht&tag=ntop

    I'm still using IE5.01 SP2 since I've had too many problems with later versions and 98SE. IE 5.01 isn't affected by this flaw, and many others.

    Hi Norm. MS really has pushed the new IE and the whole NET framework thing, pushed it to quickly I think. More time in beta = less money.
    Did MS finally get IE 5.xx patched up good or did they just fix everything by introducing the new IE 6?

    This is appreciated.

    I think MS pushes everything out too quick, but at least they make the effort to repair when it's brought to thier attention.

    Who really knows if early versions are 'fully' secure ? Probably not.
    The newer versions have added features and abilities, so I would guess they need more patches

    I believe all software have thier problems, but go unoticed as the focus always seems to be on MS products.

    Nothing is secure from MS and everyone loves their products. That's what keeps me in business!
