Patches I'm depending on you son

Microsoft has issued a critical patch for Internet Explorer. See, InternetNews.com: Microsoft Issues 'Critical' IE Patch:

These flaws results in Internet Explorer because incomplete security checking causes Internet Explorer to allow one website to potentially access information from another domain when using certain dialog boxes," the company warned.

Uh huh. Before anyone goes thinkin' they're immune to this because they no longer use IE, think again. From the horse's mouth, What You Should Know About Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-004:

You do not have to be using Internet Explorer as your Web browser to be affected by this issue.

Amazingly, they made that a parenthetical advisory. Okay, you might be safe if you've never had any trace of IE on your computer.

Grab 'em while they're hot: February 2003, Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer (810847).

Wossrom, this is for you, baby! Windows sucks.
