NEW PATCH FOR INTERNET EXPLORER

There’s another update for Internet Explorer versions 5.0, 5.5, and 6.0, to fix a slew of vulnerabilities that have come to light recently. Here’s an article with details. Everybody and their brother are trying to find ways to break Microsoft products. Microsoft has issued quite a series of security updates during the last few months, so columnists and competitors and Microsoft-bashers have had lots of opportunities to criticize Microsoft for the weaknesses in its software. Personally, I don’t think there’s any complex software on the market or in the foreseeable future that could stand up any better to the kind of concerted attacks now being leveled on Microsoft software – and Microsoft has responded reasonably promptly to each new problem when it’s been brought to their attention. Ah, well. If you’re prompted to install “automatic updates,” go ahead. If not, visit Windows Update every once in a while and download the “Critical Updates.”
