Humpty dump IE

Internet security firm Secunia says that based on three new critical holes in Microsoft’s browser, you should immediately and forever after stop using Internet Explorer because “(security) perfection is impossible”
The “extremely critical” flaws mean that hackers can gain open access to your computer even if you’ve installed XP Service Pack 2, which was designed to be much more secure than previous Windows installations. One flaw allows code to be downloaded from Web sites involuntarily — you wouldn’t even do anything or know anything was occurring.
No patches for the flaws have been made available, but the security firm maintains that these issues will continuously pop up and suggest you seek an alternative browser.
