Top three mobile application threats

Microsoft has produced a patch for the latest IE5 security hole. The problem (IE5 security hole leaves PCs wide open), discovered last month, gave those pesky "malicious Web site operators" the ability to gain access to the computer of visitors to their sites. This feature was designed into IE with the intention of allowing Web page authors access to computers in the local domain, but with a little twiddling it turned out to be possible to do the same for computers on other domains too. Microsoft's initial response to the discovery of the hole was to advise users to disable Active Scripting. But the patch is now available here. (Continued, next huge security hole). ®
