Windows 7 Browser Update Could Open Door for Hacks.

This week Microsoft is starting to test drive a browser update which will be served automatically to users of Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP in the European Union as of March 1st, 2010. The “Web browser choice screen” refresh is designed to promote choice in terms of browsers for Windows users, and to compensate for the bundling of Internet Explorer and Windows, which the European Antitrust Commission found to be a monopolist move on behalf of Microsoft. Security company Sophos is now warning that Microsoft’s “Web browser choice screen” could be used by attackers to compromise the computers of unsuspecting victims.

It amazes me how much money is spent on such trivial things.
That is my thought as an individual not any company speaking.

Thank you JMH on keeping us posted on the latest news.
