About This Video
Learn about IE security as part of the Security Talk Series of webcasts, podcasts, and videos which discuss the latest in day-to-day security and privacy challenges. I interviewed Pete LePage, IE PM, to bring some clarity to browser and IE security. We  cover the following:

       
  • Challenges with patch/vulnerability management and Microsoft’s approach
  •    
  • How can we backup our statement of IE 8 being the “most secure browser out of the box”?    
    •      
    • NSS Labs report – Mean Block rate for Socially-Engineered Malware Jan 2010: 85% IE 8, 29% Safari 4, 29% Firefox 3.5, 17% Chrome 4, <1% Opera
    •        
    • Cenzic Study – Total Web Vulnerabilities: 44% Firefox, 35% Safari, 15% IE
    •        
       
  • Why does it matter that browser security features are integrated with the browser versus being delivered as add-ons?
  •    
  • How IE stands apart from other browsers in regards to privacy, and a specific example of why you have more privacy with IE than with Google Chrome (Watch a demo of how Chrome steals your privacy).
