Trustworthy Computing strikes again

A flaw in IE6 that requires a patch to Windows Server 2003 is rated as “moderate” with the logic that servers would rarely need a browser. Oh, come on! Too funny!
Update: Okay, that’s overstated. It turns out that IE on Win2K3 ships in a highly secure mode not vulnerable to the patch’s target. However, the security mode may need to be downgraded in order to access some content, so the threat is still there.
Windows Server 2003 gets first patch. “Microsoft says the flaw’s details are a positive sign for “Trustworthy Computing,” despite the embarrassment of releasing a patch barely two months after the OS launch.” From CNET News.com
