Reported Vulnerabilities in Pocket IE

It's not too surprising that Pocket IE suffers from some of the same flaws as the desktop Internet Explorer - it shares a certain amount of the same code.

One 'fix' that has made it into Pocket IE - at least for Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition - that didn't in the end go into XP SP2 is patent-related. Yup, the Eolas patent workaround - if the page contains any scripted ActiveX controls, it pops up a dialog reading 'Press OK to continue loading this page.' Pretty annoying.
