Tell us your opinion
Microsoft is rejecting claims from security researchers that a recently discovered spoofing technique on Internet Explorer is a vulnerability in its product

Microsoft has denied that a spoofing technique available on its Internet Explorer browser is a security vulnerability.

The software giant accepted the possibility that spoofing could occur on version six of IE, but rejected claims that this was a security flaw.
From: http://news.zdnet.co.uk/internet/sec...9172310,00.htm

I hope every person in the world reads the article, then the world will know just how seriously M$ takes the end user's security.

I visit other forums and will be posting this story else where, please do the same
