Re: IE Zero-Day
Many of Microsoft's newer programs have these exploit protections baked into the compiled code of the program. But, this only happens with programs that have been compiled with recent versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler.
My guess is that Internet Explorer 9 and 10, which aren't vulnerable, have been compiled with Visual C++ 2010 or newer and the older versions are still being compiled with pre-2010 C++ compiler thus not having the protections baked into the compiled code.
