If the critical updates going to the UK government and maybe the NSA or whatever other government organizations are leaked for XP, then we won't need to disable that dll.

its always something with the internet. That's why I don't bank or do anything online unless I use a prepaid card that has just the amount of money that I'll be using to purchase said item. Also, I don't save anything on my computer that could be useful to a hacker. Don't view porn or anything else on my computer an I don't visit websites that I have no idea about.

While this is a IE specific threat it does not mean other browsers are not safe from attack.

The real threat? Stupid people who click links for this in their email.

Hypothetically a danger exist that hypothetically could cause hypothetically a problem that hypothetically if you are stupid and hypothetically use IE and hypothetically are easily swayed by hypotheticals then you may want to follow these steps. All others carry on.

If it's microsoft, it prolly has backdoors programmed in it. The best "security" MS products have is proprietary code, that the NSA probably has too. By now people should realize what they do online is being logged

zero-day? this is over 3 years old how can they call this zero day they knew about this problem and said it was not a threat, now that XP support is gone they say it is a huge threat but we won't fix it for xp.
This was planned to make sure they had something to kill XP with.

They're are probably the ones doing the hacking. Getting people to buy into a newer Operating system from them so they can make more money.
