Speaking of Security ...

Microsoft is investigating a report of seven new security holes in Internet Explorer. The holes were discovered by a Chinese researcher.
Two holes are critical and could allow an attacker to run a program that would delete files, crash the machine or take control of it from a remote location, said Russ Cooper of TruSecure Corp. who edits the NTBugTraq e-mail list.

Cooper said, however, he was not yet concerned about the security holes because of the inactivity. "There just aren't any new attacks being made" on Internet Explorer, he said.
Okay, then. Have I mentioned how much I love my OS X ;-)
