    Exclamation Internet Explorer Buffer Overrun

    Microsoft released Critical Security Bulletin MS03-020 today. It is a cumulative patch for Internet Explorer that addresses some "new" flaws:

    A buffer overrun vulnerability that occurs because Internet Explorer does not properly determine an object type returned from a web server. It could be possible for an attacker who exploited this vulnerability to run arbitrary code on a user's system. If a user visited an attacker’s website, it would be possible for the attacker to exploit this vulnerability without any other user action. An attacker could also craft an HTML email that attempted to exploit this vulnerability.
    A flaw that results because Internet Explorer does not implement an appropriate block on a file download dialog box. It could be possible for an attacker to exploit this vulnerability to run arbitrary code on a user's system. If a user simply visited an attacker’s website, it would be possible for the attacker to exploit this vulnerability without any other user action. An attacker could also craft an HTML email that attempted to exploit this vulnerability.
    If you are running Internet Explorer you should download the patch and apply it ASAP.

    Thanx for the heads up! At least this keeps me with a job...
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
