    Just has a pop-up box that says "Due to limitations of your browser, you will not be able to perform this test"

    My IE 6.0.3790.0 Does not appear to have this so called volnurability :eyebrow:

    Is this even a big deal, or just fuel for the browser wars?

    Mostly option 2

    = war fuel
    = :confused:
    "hasn't been" (exploited) + ..."when it works, it does so very well - and it has been ...") :confused:

    The article itself is sending mixed messages.

    It doesn't say it hasn't been exploited, it says it hasn't been easy to exploit.

    Well I am certainly not going to be afraid to browse the internet just because some website says as I click this button "You can be exploited". Although mine apparenly passed the little "Test" they have.

    Looks to me like the windows update released a few days ago fixed the core part of this problem ? (Something about the XML subsystem incorrectly reading certain HTML as redirects)

    I think they've been pushed off the edge, disable the yahoo one and fiddle with the rest.
