Funny article, admins should 'encourage' users to keep their software updated.
That ought to be mandatory policy, enforced by admins.
Other recommendation; 'Keep tabs on BLADE'. Which has been in pre-alpha mode since the conception of the Blade website if I'm not mistaken?
Blade v1.0 has been 'Coming soon' since Oct. 2010.
Yeah, Blade is a dead project as far as I know.
You're so kind... I wonder why BLADE never saw the light of the day? I think I remember someone in this forum saying that the team behind BLADE was busy with something else, but as soon as they could they would start working on it again. I think it was something like that. But, this was a long time ago!
Anyway, Kristal Safe Way, mentioned at the other anti-malware forum, aims at the same, by protecting users against drive-by downloads. The newest version allows the user to specify which browsers to be protected.
Author doesn't follow her own advice Sorry about that folks!
Incredibly funny/sad article.
1. Encourage employees to keep their software up to date. - what do employees have to do with updates, especially since it contradicts with advice #6.
2.,3. - to cripple the browser to enjoy the web, common users are never gonna to do it and they would have to enable it anyway, so it is a pointless advice.
4. Someone still uses/preinstall it with all the flash, activex or HTML5 around?
6. that does not applies only to employees, it is standard anyway, but to home users as well, though they do know not to use it, so back to a good old fashioned AV advice.
this article is only valid after BLADE release
