http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6645895.stm Spotted this today, the fact that Google needs to flag sites with a warning really says it all about the average Windows user's attitude to security. Just using Firefox as the default browser would stop most of the ' drive-by ' malware downloads. Wonder how soon M$ will issue a statement playing down the risk?

Ignore the MSN association, it was widely published but because I forgot where I read it from originally, I just picked the first result (facts are the same).

Just shows how few people use FF + NoScript.
They trust Internet Explorer because M$ said they should lol!!!
Most people can't tell the difference between a ''good'' and a ''bad'' site aswell.
