Google not using Chrome, but IE instead

Friday Jan 22nd 2010 by -

Google's corporate network was hacked because its workers were not running their own browser, but Microsoft's Internet Explorer

Thursday, 14 January, 2010, Mike Reavey, director of Microsoft's Security Response Center acknowledged that an IE exploit had been used in the attacks against Google and other major corporations.

Why Google workers were using IE, especially IE 6, remains a mystery, but it is actually the norm within technology companies for employees to run multiple browsers.

The fact remains: many customers are still using IE 6, despite all efforts to encourage customers to upgrade; and, as long as this fact remains true, who knows what further exploits in IE 6 may be discovered.
