Sinds twee weken geeft secunia aan dat Internet explorer 8 onveilig is op mijn PC, maar dat er geen oplossing beschikbaar is. Op welke manier kan ik onderzoeken of het inderdaad zo is?
Ik gebruik Windows Vista Home Premium.

Hello ,

The language of the thread is almost always English and gets you a quicker and "better" reply .

IE has a basic long standing fault which M$ have no apparent intention of fixing and so you see the message in "secure browsing" all the time ; more recent vulnerabilities in IE will also show up there until a patch/solution is available ; this will then show in the "insecure" tab .

The most critical vulnerability with no solution will be recorded in "secure browsing"and you can read about it in the Secunia Advisory ; click on the SA number to the right of the listing.

Hope this is clear , if not , please ask again , preferrablyin English as I do not speak Dutch .

Anthony

Hi,

It is correct that some reported vulnerabilities cannot be patched, but that does not mean you should just ignore the information. It's provided to help you decide whether or not you wish to take the risk with that particular piece of software.

Hope this helps.

Hello Peter

The point of Emil`s reply (I believe) was not to suggest that you change your Internet Service Provider (ISP), but consider the security threats of the different browsers that are available to you to use.

For example, you can choose to use Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome (which are just 3 of the available choices), to access the internet.

All browsers can be prone to insecurities at different times, depending on the version.

What was meant, was that you have to consider whether you choose to use one that may have an unpatchable security hole.

By looking at the information under the secure browsing tab, can help your choice. You can see the threat rating from 1 (mild) to 5 (severe) and by clicking on the SA----- number, you can get more information relating to the threat.

I hope this helps and is understandable for you.

Hello Peter ,

All browsers show an "insecurity" or "unpatched vulnerability" from time to time and for different reasons . So sometimes they will show in the "secure browsing" tab as not safe for browsing .

IE has a known problem that is not going to be patched , as far as we know .

Firefox is shown to have a vulnerabilty which only one person seems to know about , see this (long thread) :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/358...

It seems impossile to say what the exact danger is in Firefox .

At the moment ohly Chrome is showing as safe for browsing (of the three) on my PC .

All this will continue to change as no browser is or will be 100% secure . You need to use safe browsing practices anyway when you are on the wsb .

Take care
Anthony
