You would think they would be running out of security holes by now (prehaps they threw in some IIS code to keep themselves busy :-).

I removed IE from 98 last night, so its not a concern to me anymore.

Yes... perhaps a more appropriate name for IE would be 'Internet Sieve' in regards to security. A lot of development went into IE 6.0 so I find inexcusable that such basic flaws are still being found. How long till Service Pack 1 comes out for Windows XP? - not very long at all I would imagine.
