IE security problems open doors to friends and foes

Tuesday, 20 July 2004, 3:10 PM EST

As security software developer Winferno launches an add-on that fills IE's security gaps, UK-based Deepnet Technologies has decided the time is right to release a rival to IE called Deepnet Explorer.

Winferno, a security software development firm from Boston, said its Secure IE 2004 Suite helps protects the user from spyware, unknown ActiveX scripts and key-logging software. Additionally, it also adds functionality such as tabbed browsing, a download manager and improved cookie management.

According to Winferno, the security suite provides a defence for Web browsing in much the same way that an antivirus software provides protection for email.
