RE: How big is the danger of IE?

well, i read about a hacker scenario once that utilizes IE vulnerabilities
by exploiting the interests of employees. basically, you lure an employee to
a website you prepared that exploits some bug in IE to install a trojan on
that pc, thus bypassing firewall and other security precautions. if you
think about it, it really is that easy. just imagine what a keylogger could
do on the workstation of an executive or a member of congress...

Subject: [Full-disclosure] How big is the danger of IE?

I would be interested to hear just how big the danger of IE is.  
How could it affect the privacy of big business?, or any business for that
matter?  

or what about the Government - could information leak from govenrment
employees computers?  They do something to stop that right?
