I have a real issue with this article. Its wrong. Looking at the link, the actual number of outlook 2003 vulnerabilities is actually 15!. Its gone up!

Forgive my ignorance, but hasnt MS been on a security mission since 2002 or so, and the latest version of Outlook 2003 was supposed to be really secure ?

Well, thats another piece of MS FUD Propoganda deconstructed. Are there any left ?
