That is incorrect, there is a fix --> SP2.
Users should use the latest updated system, meaning if there is an SP2, they 
should install it.

They should've at least released that statement after they fixed the
IE FRAME vulnerability. 0 day exploit is in the wild and no fix for
it, yet they claim its secure enough.

If the programmers are as smart as the company press releasers, I can
see  why I.E. still sux.

At a security roundtable discussion in Sydney on Thursday, Ben English,
Microsoft's security and management product manager, told attendees that
IE undergoes "rigorous code reviews" and is no less secure than any
other browser.

"Because IE is ubiquitous, you hear a lot more about it, but I don't
think that Internet Explorer is any less secure than any other browser
out there," English said.
