Hi Llanziel,

We have been reporting this before here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53364.msg453245#msg453245

Who still is using IE6, well in a corporate environment because of certain webapps
Lock-in is a bitch...

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
