    doesnt it mostly come down to what you have you on your computer and your connection shit. like my router has a built in firewall, i have virus software that continuously scans any data being saved to my harddrive, and i have pop up blockers......

    not at all.

    firewalls prevent outside things from coming in.

    IE exploits are simply webpages, programs, activex controls, etc, that contain something that attacks a whole in the browser it self. the firewall doesn't see it as a hacker- its something you requested to come in in the first place.

    yeah- And the exploit was discovered, and a patch released 2 days later.

    how many months have we waited for SP2?

    oh yeah, about 30
