    And, even though they never said it, we all know that you have to be using
    Internet Explorer to be affected.

    If you follow the link in this article you get this:

    On the XMLHTTP vulnerability: So far, we have only one confirmed sighting of this exploit, and it’s on an
    obscure website. If you ask me, this is a pretty crappy exploit (in that it doesn’t work all that well). We
    downloaded the page and according to Virustotal, only McAfee detected it.


    I guess the sky isn't falling (at least not yet).
