Old news is old news.I'd suggest you IE users frequently visit this site for news rather than relying on info from M$ directly.Opera/Chrome/IE and FF can visit all sites around the world without any difficulties nor problems or strange errors. However, IE is tends to be the biggest warning due to that users have different outdated (or not *cough*) versions (3-7-8b*) rather than relying on builds by Mozilla's Firefox or Opera's own browser, even Google's Chrome have the same setup by releasing builds instead of relying on "security patches" that makes the browser fail as it can only fail even harder and be used by the average joeedit: FYI, these patches were put together along with a new exploit posted in one of Malgayne's links.
Linux and Firefox FTW.It might be of interest to know that Linux has had more security and general patches released this last year than any other OS (including MS). Roughly 3 times as many as the next leading OS (which is not MS).Have you upgraded your Linux in the last week? If not, then it's probably out of date and at risk.lol, and did you know that almost no one bothers to hack into linux dekstop distribution? only targeted server distors are getting attacked.Mac OS X and linux distros are safest simply because they are least used. all the propaganda of uber-OSes worths nothing
I don't want to turn this in an OS debate, so I apologize if my post sparked something like this. Just thought it was in the subject to let people know that I use Linux and I like it.

Personally, I can't stand firefox. I use Greenbrowser when I'm not using ie which is most of the time. Main advantage and reason I use it is due to playing a browser based game before playing wow, green is the equivalent of multi-boxing software on that type of game allowing you to play multiple characters.
It disappoints me so many people depend on NoScript and AdBlock. So many websites depend on these advertisements as their only source of income. I clicked on an ad in Wowhead today because I was interested in the product it was advertising. Now I am considering a new keyboard. =D. I am deeply disappointed in the several security flaws Microsoft is stepping in. I wish they'd stop pushing their IE 8 and fix their current browsers first. A large majority of the browser market is Internet Explorer, sadly, it has many exploits.
It's not just IE. It's java script and flash as well which allow injections by ads, the last round of keyloggers(not this one) was due to a bug in java script; the one before that was flash. Tough for the websites that rely on them, but the second that any advertisement has the possibility of being a source of infection regardless of it being legitimate, that means it can't be trusted. That means you either remove the ability for remote injections, or you leave the ability for sandbox code execution but block the primary sources of infection(usually advertisements), simply because advertisers are so poor at doing proper research into remote code execution, there have been several cases of injection via tampered webpages however.
The reason that more hackers are searching for IE issues is simply that 95% of the users use IE. Why spend your time looking for a bug in Firefox (as an example) when fewer than 2% of the world uses it?http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp Fx = FirefoxDo your research before you post random stats.P.S. Yes I know that if you add IE6 and IE7 together then IE wins, but its still not 95% vs 2%
just a question: can WoW run on Linux? wine emulator maybe?Yes, I use Wine. It haven't had any problem with it, so my WoW isn't at all affected by my change to Linux.
Or you could just start using firefox. You won't regret it. I never have.
If I may, I may recommend hooking yourself up withMozilaa Firefox.it is a much faster, more reliable browser. :))
Like the majority of the posts, I use Firefox too, switched from IE a few years ago, a few days after Firefox was released cause of my neighbor who recommended me, fell in love and haven't looked back since.I had to use IE a few times after (cause FF wasn't entierly supported and well.. still isn't 100% compatible) and it felt weird, like meeting an ex that you dumped and feel sort of bad for.Also NoScript and Ad-block simply are too good to give up.The Love story of a browser /end geekness.
Try #1: Downloading Firefox, getting virus, screwing up my PC, taking care of virus, uninstalling Firefox. (had Kaspersky back then, NEVER failed before)Try #2: Downloading Firefox, downloading Noscript&Adblock, getting virus, screwing up my PC all over again, taking care of virus, uninstalling Firefox. (still used Kaspersky)Never ever tried to install it again. Same thing happened with Skype, another overly popular program.Thanks for the heads-up. I'm rather screwed since I only have IE (since those last incidents, I lost all my trust in other browsers and even OS-s). :(
Just came across this postFirefox aint never getting installed on my system. Im using IE 8 Beta and havent had any probs. Its also not affected according to MS Technet.
Just came across this postFirefox aint never getting installed on my system. Im using IE 8 Beta and havent had any probs. Its also not affected according to MS Technet.Actually, it is affected. If you read closer, you'll see that they didn't release an MS update patch because it's out in the wild. You'll have to manually download the update off the MS site.
Does anyone know why do they puy alliances in their pictures and why not hordes?
For anyone who has mentioned chrome as an alternative just an FYI. I work in tech support for a living and chrome has a bigger security leak than anything else. I wouldn't recommend using it until its been patched a few times.
