Microsoft Details Security Features in Internet Explorer 8
IE8 Beta 1 will be available to consumers this summer
APRIL 8, 2008 | SAN FRANCISCO — RSA 2008 Conference — Microsoft will release the first beta version of Internet Explorer 8 to consumers this summer, with new security features that add more protection for both browser-based and server-based attacks, as well as social engineering exploits.
Craig Spiezle, director of security, safety, and industry for Windows product management at Microsoft, said here in an interview that IE8 Beta 1 builds on and expands some of the security features of IE7. Microsoft released the beta version of its upcoming browser to developers early last month. Spiezle wouldn’t say when Microsoft will roll out the final version of IE8.
