So what else is new? Microsoft's August IE security patch has a very critical flaw that would crash the browser when using some web based applications (PeopleSoft, Sage CRM). Also, websites that use HTTP 1.1 compression to speed up download of images would also cause the browser with this path to crash. This flaw can be used by attackers to run unauthorized software on a victim's computer.

Yep, its not new. Not the first time we've heard a similar story about a security patch from Microsoft. Mind you, I'm not one of those Unix lovers who likes to bash Microsoft and its products unnecessarily. I actually like MS too, for some reason. The thing is, they should look into possible flaws that might arise (when used with famous 3rd party programs) before releasing the patches. Oh well, it's not going to affect me in anyway. Firefox all the way .
