Microsoft has always been one among the global software giants, which continue to suffer with security loopholes in their products. Talking about internet explorer, different versions of IE used to have plenty of security loopholes, but in recent times Microsoft has come up with a few latest versions that offer enhanced security compared to the formers.
Weather it is IE, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Chrome etc., no browser is completely secured and resistant to malware infections. However, Microsoft has been moderately improving its browser security for quite some time now. Some of the features being embedded in browser security include Internet Explorer running in a low privilege protected mode; web page scanning for malware and phishing attacks; checking on the downloads that are being performed, whether it is known programs; using Address Space Layout Randomization so that malicious software codes do not switch areas of memory and run the infections. Although that is nice on the part of association with the third-party developers whose security Microsoft is concerned about, but what about the end users who cannot pressurize developers to fix their codes?
It is not that Microsoft is shy giving out details of the loopholes in its products but it tends to loose on the side of politeness when partners are not measuring up; It took so long for Microsoft to name Yahoo as the third-party company running up data usage on Windows 7 Phones, Microsoft never named and will never name the device drivers that caused 80% crashes in Windows Vista Operating System or Microsoft never named the Internet Explorer plug-in that is number one cause of major Windows and IE crashes.
Microsoft has came up with a great change that should be appreciated and welcomed, the choose add-ons dialog box that pops up in Internet Explorer soon after one installs a add-ons in IE9; it elaborates on the details that add-ons can slow down opening new tabs to such an extent that the whole browser feels slow conveying content that Skype adds 0.14 seconds and Java adds 0.13 seconds and the Microsoft ‘search helper’ adds 0.09 seconds means you actually know who is to blame.
With the IE 9 Release Candidate available and being used by some of the tech professionals, it is being reviewed that IE does badly in terms of security; It would be more interesting if the fellow readers getting along with the article can provide more of their feedback and statistics after the release of IE which is being slated for launch on 14th March 2011.
