Is this OTT or will other governments follow suit and can MS restore confidence in their browser?

Nope. Nothing to do with me.

Not much interest shown.

The suspicion is that this hacking was carried out at a high level using vast resources unavailable to the average hacking low life.

IE is always having reported security problems.

None of you are spooks nor do any of you have vital/sensitive info on your computers. The chances of someone hacking into a home computer are less than nil. As Military computers seem to get hacked regularly, I would worry too much about flaws in IE that only experts from GCHQ could exploit.
Total non-story trying to make home users appear much more important than they really are.

Damn you mean I'm not important.

No doubt you form part of the vast eternal plan, but as far as this story is concerned no, you're not important.

"None of you are spooks"

Speak for yourself; anyway, the correct term is "company men"!

its making people sound more at risk thats the problem. Certain parties involved in that article should know better.

add to all this the fact that certain people, on seeing these articles in the press, think it is their duty to e mail the information to everyone in their address book (including me)! I wonder if there are any stats relating to increased number of e mails after these stories appear?
