IE8 is flagged as Insecure, no solution & has been
practically since it's introduction. Rumor is that because
the vulnerability is so small that M$ probably won't issue a patch.
They'll probably just roll out IE9 & patch that way.

If Microsoft really wants its users to keep using IE, they need to step-up & start releasing security patches more frequently. They should look at how Mozilla does things - they know how to release patches. :)
Edit: Hopefully Microsoft will release a patch for IE 8 within two weeks of it being reported, but we can only hope. I'm glad I use Firefox. Microsoft should treat this as being serious - having an extremely-critical vulnerability in your browser isn't going to help win over people.
