New Attacks Target IE7 Flaw

,----[ Quote ]
| Internet attack trackers and antivirus companies warn that a flaw in Internet 
| Explorer 7 (but not earlier versions) that Microsoft just patched last week 
| is under attack in the wild. The attacks appear to be targeted and 
| small-scale right now, but will likely grow.   
| 
| Trend Micro describes a somewhat roundabout attack that starts with an 
| e-mailed .doc file that, when opened, exploits the MS09-002 vulnerability to 
| download and install remote-control backdoor malware.

Microsoft Statement on European Commission Statement of Objections

,----[ Quote ]
| "Yesterday Microsoft received a Statement of Objections from the Directorate
| General for Competition of the European Commission. The Statement of
| Objections expresses the Commission's preliminary view that the inclusion of
| Internet Explorer in Windows since 1996 has violated European competition
| law. According to the Statement of Objections, other browsers are foreclosed
| from competing because Windows includes Internet Explorer. The Statement of
| Objections states that the remedies put in place by the U.S. courts in 2002
| following antitrust proceedings in Washington, D.C. do not make the inclusion
| of Internet Explorer in Windows lawful under European Union law.
