  • 1st of infinity, LOL.. but MS claims that flaw is in outlook & secunia who discovered it, is wrong that it's in IE. whatever, is the case the flaw was discovered long back in April since then MS hasn't done anything. Flaw is flaw.. and will remain flaw. whichever way it goes. it doesn't matter.

    anyways, u can read a good techno research blog at http://www.rncos.com/Blog/itresearch.html that i recently found.

    thx.
