I was just reading a news/alert about Internet Explorer vulnerability.
The NVD site (below) says IE6 to IE9, but Microsoft narrows that to IE7 to IE9.

But I am wondering if Opus' Browser engine has the same weakness. And if so, does the engine get repaired by Microsoft Security fixes?

BTW, since we're talking about Opus' use of the ActiveX Control / IE Browser engine.... has anyone heard of "Firebreath"?
I'll just note it here in case any of you see this as something DW can leverage to go wider, cross-platform --- in which case, please bring it to their attention.
