imageA few of you have reported a problem with narrow comments that get truncated on the right. I have submitted the problem to WordPress, the company that hosts this blog. I am still waiting for an answer. 

In the meantime, I have noticed that the problem seems to be limited to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. The problem disappears on my computer when I use Chrome or Firefox.

Incidentally, and I doubt there is any connection, this problem appears on the the most current releases of the same browser that Homeland Security is recommending we not use until Microsoft makes some corrections to solve some serious security issues.

From Homeland Security:


Microsoft Internet Explorer contains a use-after-free vulnerability, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.


Microsoft Internet Explorer contains a use-after-free vulnerability. This can allow for arbitrary code execution. Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 are affected.

Note that this vulnerability is being exploited in the wild. Although no Adobe Flash vulnerability appears to be at play here, the Internet Explorer vulnerability is used to corrupt Flash content in a way that allows ASLR to be bypassed via a memory address leak. This is made possible with Internet Explorer because Flash runs within the same process space as the browser. Note that exploitation without the use of Flash may be possible.


By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message or attachment), an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code.

And this just drifted in from Word Press.
