PivX says since the release of Microsoft's last security advisory, it has seen "a sea change in Microsoft's commitment to rid its IE browser of the vulns that PivX Solutions and other third party researchers have identified."

"As you know Microsoft has just released a new patch MS03-040, which renders several IE vulns obsolete. We are presently testing the efficacy of the vulns reported to be fixed and we can report that MS03-040 is doing the job it was intended to. Let’s just hope that users are diligent in applying the patch," the explanation says.
