    if you want to get an idea what's inside of sp2, read this

    lots of security measures to be sure.

    one thing of interest, I predicted ms would incorporate a sandbox of sorts in their security fixes, and so they have;

    Safer browsing. Security technologies delivered in Internet Explorer that will provide improved protection against malicious content on the Web. One enhancement includes locking down the local machine zone to prevent against the running of malicious scripts and fortifying against harmful Web downloads. Additionally, we will provide better user controls and user interfaces that help prevent malicious ActiveX® controls and spyware from running on customers' systems without their knowledge and consent.

    in other words, a sandbox.

    cool, I have a fetish for sandboxes

    Posted this link here in the security section some time ago. Doesn't look like ICF is going to have outbound filtering though, at least as per that article.
    Guess I'm going to have to stick to Kerio.

    Surely you would anyway. ICF even with outbound filtering still would be a very basic solution.
