Don't just stand around! Here, let me fix this

Interesting development. Last week an Israeli security expert discovered an Internet Explorer vulnerability that could be exploited via Google's Desktop Search. Although this was clearly a fault in IE itself, Google rather than Microsoft was the one who ended up patching the leak by adapting its Desktop Search software.

Does Google care more and better for the safety of its users' surfing experience than the other guy? Or is this the first victory for Google's business model over Microsoft's more traditional approach? Watch this space.
