    Hey Microsoft, I have read the news on this security flaw. Now, this is really going to force me to stop using IE for good. Thank you.

    I am a principal engineer and was responsible for software bugs.  You may have stopped support for "XP" like new features but you are responsible for bugs in your software that you missed.  Like the auto industry, when a problem is found in an old car, they are still responsible to recall the cars and fix them.  Therefore, you have to fix internet explorer for XP computers if you don't want a class action lawsuit filed.  Please take my comments into consideration.

    Thank you,

    So you wait until you cancel the support for widows xp before announcing the bug. I sold all my stocks in Windows today and am switching to Safari and Chrome.

    my company still uses xp.

    we know that xp is no longer supported, but is the explorer fix will work also on xp OS?

    Zero day code exploit in IE has required me to recommend halting use of IE altogether until entire code base is purged and ground up new IE is released (after significant real-world testing).

    Why did you decide to stop servicing Windows XP with so many of us still using it? I only hope your security patch for my internet explorer works if you have installed it.
