this shouldn't be hard to patch
thats weird on all the pcs that ive installed sp2, when i try to run a program from the desktop it asks me and i say dont ask me again, and it asks me again for exe files later on they should fix that!
It's not a really a flaw now is it. It's a local issue and provides very little usefulness in terms of attack. You would still have to normally execute the malware! If you downloaded Malware this is the area you want your AV to step in before execution and before a prompt by XP!
You have to be aware people are going to look for the slightest issue and make a big deal of it. I agree with Microsoft's classification and response to this, it's hardly worthy of the attention it's getting on tech sites.
It will continue to be a non issue until some bored 10 year old desides that they want to try out this ZoneID "loophold" to screw with things. Then we'll see if it's a non issue or what.
But for now it's the typical exagerations of things.
