March 15th, 2006, 01:51 PM #1So who else does not like the new IE Security Update
I think Microsoft has gone overboard. Those of you using IE 6 with the latest security updates probably know what I am talking about. If you don't have IE 6 or if you do but did not download yesterdays update. MS added a new security control to force users to double click some content. Be it Flash or Media Player.
Problem is a lot of ads are being targeted and even legit content. I think MS is making some legit sites look like the bad guys. I mean if you are browsing a website and all of a sudden part of the content is being blocked waiting for you to activate it. It makes the site look suspicious and users will give it a second thought and may not activate it and may not visit your site again.

I keep running into people who bought computers last year with XP and who have never connected with MS for updates.
Time bombs, all.

is this similar to Firefox's FlashBlock? (flash-elements on a site are not downloaded until user selects to view them)

Sounds to me like this has to do with the eolas lawsuit and not any security issues.<A HREF="http://www.affmarketing.org/">The Affiliate Marketing Blog</A>: Check out my latest entry on "Affiliate Marketing on a Dime"

This might be a backport. From reading about IE7, pretty much everything, such as ActiveX, will be disabled and will have to be explicitly activated by the user.
Most ActiveX controls are disabled by default. You have to specifically approve the use of any ActiveX control, even if it's part of the operating system. That simple precaution goes a long way toward blocking a common path for browser-based attacks.
