Now I and many of these observers can hardly be called Agents of Doom or Redmond Web Saboteurs. Rather, we just dont want to repeat the ActiveX/Web debacle where Microsoft and users of its IE and other Web software were explicitly warned of the dangers/risks that ActiveX and lax Web security settings exposed users to … and then barely a year later became victims along with everybody else of the deluge of Microsoft-caused breaches where worms, viruses and other hack attacks based on these very same vulnerabilities crippled systems worldwide.
In sum, on this vital issue be a Dumb Boy Scout – Be Prepared. Remember the opposition is no longer punk hackers seeking coding glory; but rather organized crime out to steal your assets.
