25% of IE Bugs REMAIN Unpatched!
This is YET ANOTHER report on a new, bad IE problem, but what got me was the admission at the very bottom of the article… on FULLY PATCHED Windows systems… Internet Explorer still has 25% of the known exploits un-patched… because there are, as yet, no patches for it! WHAT!!!!????
“Based on 85 advisories published by Secunia between 2003 and 2005, about 25 percent of IE bugs remain unpatched. More than 40 percent of those advisories are serious enough to be used in system compromise attacks.” (Emphasis mine.)
This is ridiculous!
