Subject: Re:About the mouseover windowmove
I read this on one of the IE developers weblogs (I don't remember which one but you'll probaly find it with Google).
The bug was that if a user did a mousedown on a link and a malicous script moved the window then a drag session was initiated. This could lead to the user draging the link to the desktop, home page button, favorites menu or whatever.
Instead of fixing the real bug; the user needs to drag the link for a drag session to start the disabled moving the window.
There are no known work arounds and if one is fixed MS will most likely just prevent that as well instead of fixing the real bug.
