Addendum to AV Letter

A couple of additions to Mike Dimmick’s letter to Microsoft on anti-virus software and how not everyone needs it.



  • Don’t use Internet Explorer
  • Don’t use Outlook Express

This seems to connect well with his other points. OE happily lets you run executable attachments, or runs them for you, and many (most) security patches I see are related to Internet Explorer.


BTW, hi Mike, you’re now in my aggregator 🙂
