Microsoft agrees to release a patch to fix some of the security issues but not all in Internet Explorers URI Handler. I don’t understand why Microsoft has such a lazy stance on security, I want to use Internet Explorer just as securely as any other browser. One mis-typed url after a fresh install of Windows could cause malicious software to gain entry to me desktop.

Microsoft has stated that they will be releasing a patch to fix some, but not all, potential security flaws resulting from third-party applications being fed maliciously malformed URI requests.
