Submission + - Did Microsoft Know About the IE Zero-Day flaw In Advance?-> 1

ZDI's listings show its most recent report to Microsoft on 24 J uly, suggesting Microsoft may have known about this one for some time. The possibility raises questions about Microsoft's openness — as well as about the ethics of the zero day exploit market"
