You should add "Update to version 8" as a solution, since the vulnerability doesn't affect IE 8...

(also, in Google Chrome reports from version 3 you add the Update to version 4 solution... what's happening here, why you treat them differently?)

Microsoft needs to release a patch to fix this vulnerability. I'm using IE 7 & I cannot upgrade because I'm on a school computer which has limited permissions.

I also apologize for my previous post - it was off-topic.
