And Service Pack 2 is free, except for the huge download and the problems if you install it at the wrong time...

EDIT: The Secunia Article on this exploit. They only rate it as "moderately critical", presumably because you need Hide Extensions for Known File Types on for it to work. IE's full Secunia vulnerability report is "Extremely Critical", because of the IFRAME buffer overflow attack (which has a working exploit has been published on public mailing lists.), which Secunia can only recommend to "Use another product".
The IFRAME attack doesn't work under SP2.

So, the people who have XP, and have had the time to backup and reformat their drive to avoid the problems SP2 causes if you don't, aren't affected by it. Oh, wow, that's alot of people. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
