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
seeĀ   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.
