Do any business use it? Or is it finally dead?

Who uses 32-bit IE 10 or below? I'm sure a lot of businesses do, and Cracked is a nice site to view while bored at work...

The place where I work is still dependent on IE 7/8. Entire business, thousands of computers, because security changes in newer versions that prevent older business applications with browser integration from working without extremely expensive upgrades and long testing periods.

Sucks, but it's fairly common.

Yep, same here. All our home-brewed intranet applications run on shitty IE7/8, and they break with 9/10 or 11. (though most actually do work on Chrome.)

Every time someone has a problem with the "internet", I just say "Well, it's because we're using a seven year old browser."

Note to self: may need to borrow that line. I generally just use "shitty-assed IE", but yours is a bit more diplomatic.

The Barracuda article includes a description of the exploit, the URLs involved, the affected browser, a link to the CVE page for the exploit involved, and a packet capture. I don't know what more you want from them.

Re: Cracked

That article is kind of worthless. It states that only 'some' virus checks can detect an infection but doesn't actually bother specifying which ones? Instead just asking visitors to avoid the site? Are softpedia / Barracuda Labs owned by MAD Magazine or something?

Better question... who still uses Internet Explorer? and the 32 bit version at that...
