Vista su and IE7 sploit security risks

The NY Times has a habit of removing articles two weeks after posted, so don't dawdle to read this article on security exploits within Windows Vista.

A sploit for IE7 is also cited, as well as the elevation insecurity risk within the Vista beta.

Not having Vista myself, I can't comment on this exploit; the one 30-day beta I did try this summer was attractive, yet plagued (as early betas often are) with hindrances (as First Blogger Jerry Pournelle noted, it required user permission, annoyingly, far too often).
