    Browser-based security threats are on the rise and may pose the next significant risk to information technology operations, according to a technology trade association.

    The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) on Monday released its second annual report on IT security and the work force. The survey asked nearly 900 organizations to rank their top 15 security concerns. According to the results, 36.8 percent said they were plagued by one or more browser-based attacks in the last six months. That's up from 25 percent in last year's survey.

    Service Pack 2 of Windows XP should address these concerns, as will {I'm sure} the next release of Windows named Longhorn. :cool:

    I use Firefox. Gave up IE long time ago, mainly because it's not functionally anymore. No tabs, boring look and it's full of flaws. Microsoft should make a better browser.
