Internet Explorer 7 final release – AND first vulnerability…



Looks as though IE 7 release is imminent and will be in automatic updates on November 1st. Here’s one persons take on the user interface “improvements”. Now, there are many improvements in core functionality, but I’m annoyed by the user interface changes. I have spent quite a while with people getting use to the way the interface for windows programs have been for the last 10 years, now I feel like many of them will take another 5-8 years to get used to a NEW way to expect programs to be laid out….


Okay – if you thought IE 7 would “fix” the security of Explorer…. the first vulnerability for IE 7 has been discovered less than 24 hours after it’s official public release.

Ouch. It is an information disclosure vulnerability.

The download page for IE7 is here.

Between the Lines has a review of the new release which is less than overwhelming.

–update on the IE7 vulnerability–

Turns out the vulnerability dates back to November 2003 betanews reports that IE6 was found to be vulnerable to this last April.

–update–

No it isn’t in IE7 – Yes it is…. that’s essentially how the debate has gone – Microsoft has denied it was in IE7 and others have validated Secunia’s claim of it affecting IE7 since IE7 is a exploit vector. See betanews for more.
