This site in Belgium (http://webtest.scanit.be/bcheck/index.php) will test your browser for vulnerabilities.

Win 2000 is NT5.0 so they may be right.

Yes it runs 22 tests and does open and close a lot of windows. Netscape 7 and mozilla get a clean bill of health. Opera crashes when tested. IE6 fully patched on Win98 still has one medium vulnerability.

Yep, it is.. RawWrite reports it as that too....

Dunno what they're calling .NET - Should b 6 IMHO!

XP is NT 5.1

Also gecko engine (mozilla, netscape, phoenix, etc) seem to be fine. IE not so.

Why do you say that Chilling_Silence?

It also told me I was running Win 98.... when I'm using Win ME....

Plus when they say to check Windows Update for these patches, that I need, they Not listed there???? ?:| ?:|

They need to improve it a lot!

I reakon cuz it's built on the .NET Framework, as opposed to the origional NT technology. I could be wrong though, but to me, .NET rc2 seemed like a whole new ball game in the OS dept.

It was a major improvement from XP and 2K, and if Longhorn is an end-user based version of this as opposed to a Server OS, then I'll be lining up to buy longhorn ASAP!

fair enough I suppose. But as far as I am aware the .NET Server (now called Windows Server 2003?) is the server version of XP well sort of. Just like there is Windows 2002 Profession/Server/Adv.Server.

Longhorn has a new filesystem and other goodies like that...... *waits for a trial of longhorn ;)*

Am I overly paranoid? ?:| While I may be willing to let Symantec or ZoneAlarm perform security checks on my PC (even that is a lot of trust), I cannot imagine why anybody would let an unknown website poke and prod their system unless they have very high security measures in place. And if that is the case, why do you need to test your system. ?:| Do you have any idea what that site did to your machine. ]:)

I got the site from The Register which I have a lot of faith in but I still had a good firewall and up to date virus checker.

I'm impressed. Two medium risk security holes, neither with available patches from MS, so not my fault.

no offence to you, but ME was really only a face lift of 98.
