Internet Explorer: Bocked!


Internet Explorer's enhanced security configuration just blocked it's own "about:internet" page. No, I'm not making this up, and I didn't Photoshop it ;)

Considering the lax security practices of IE developers, the about: pages could well be dangerous!

Perhaps Aaron attempted humour there, but the sad fact is that this is true. As soon as IE ships with a 'known good' list of content locations, every attacker under the sun will focus their efforts there, and as time has shown, someone will find a hole.

This IE behaviour looks rediculous, but it's the correct thing to do under the circumstances. You have Enhanced Security Configuration enabled and this is the sort of thing you have to deal with, in order to attain some of that enhanced security. :)
