Internaut IQ update - June

Microsoft released IE 9.01 last month, it patched a Critical Flaw that allowed malicious code execution from just viewing a craftily designed webpage.
The hole affected IE's versions 6, 7, 8, and 9, fortunately Microsoft's "Patch Tuesday" came to the rescue again! Those of you that are still using IE to browse the internet should minimally find out about "Exploit Wednesday" or better, download a browser developed by folks more concerned with safety of users than simplicity of merchants.
Google's Chrome made headlines last month for a security flaw found by researchers.
The article also tries to throw a "cloud of uncertainty over the whole subject of Cloud Computing" which may be reasonable, and also might not. It is possible for Cloud Computing to be conducted in a safe manner, however that safety has a direct relationship to Internaut Intelligence and vigilance.
NoScript would handle the new WebGL flaw the could affect Google Chrome as well. The immediate work-around for this problem seems to be just disabling the feature in your browser, but that won't work for long since any new technology tends toward a very fast adoption in our new Web2.0 world.
