But here is the dirty little secret of browser security: Even if every Internet browser made today were completely bug-free, it wouldn’t stop malicious hackers and malware. Why? Because the vast majority of successful malicious exploits today don’t exploit buggy browsers, but rather unwitting* end-users. That is, Web-based malware is successful because end-users are intentionally installing it! Most exploit code doesn’t search for an unpatched vulnerability, but simply asks the user to install. – Roger Grimes, Infoworld
