Google Desktop Security Flaw Blamed on Microsoft Internet Explorer

Take a look at’s report on Google having to fix its Desktop search tool in order to prevent hackers from getting in.

“Google has modified its Google Desktop search tool to prevent users’ PCs from being attacked by hackers using a vulnerability in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser.”

I would have thought this would be a flaw with Google Desktop not IE. IE existed before GDS, so why should the blame be placed on Microsoft? I know the Redmond company seems to get all of the flack for security flaws, but this hardly seems fair.
