Microsoft researchers are experimenting with an automatic code zapper for the company's Internet Explorer Web browser.

"This can provide another layer of security, even on unpatched browsers," Wang said in an interview with eWEEK. "If a patch isn't available, a BrowserShield-enabled tool bar can be used to clean pages hosting malicious content."

hope it's not like their 'automatic phishing detector' on IE7 - i've heard a lot of people are getting false positives. and to top it off, you have to call them to tell them you're not a phisher...

I'd expect them to be able to fundamentally redesign IE and build a safer browser instead of adding an extra layer complexity.

If a 3rd party does this; it's their best possible effort.
For Microsoft it's a shame to consider this as they could fix MSIE itself since they have full control over it.
