In the wake of the Google China hack, this is my interpretation of the of the mixed messaging [statements] coming from MS.
- This was nothing to do with an IE6 exploit
- Ok, it was a bit to do with it, but it’s perfectly safe
- Only a fool would still be using IE6 still you desperately need to upgrade to IE8!
- There’s nothing really wrong with IE6 and besides, other browsers have security issues too! Why change.
I have followed the story since it broke with a wry smile and from the statements released, that is how i interpreted them. Is it any wonder people still using IE6+ don’t know what to make of it all.
