I've read somewhere, lost the link - but some Chinese programmer showed like some 50 ways of hacking IE; in some of the examples just by visiting the site - he can INSTALL any software on your machine. The guy is benevolent so all you get is like a "Hello World" message box. But still pretty scary. Some of the hacks would work even if your security settings were at a maximum. Some hacks are still unpatched. To be fair he showed also some Mozilla hacks - maybe it's blind faith, but I bet they have been patched since.
