RITLabs says that The Bat! users have nothing to be afraid of

News agencies are insistent in speaking about Microsoft Outlook vulnerability detected by Sunbelt Software company and iDefence department of VeriSign company. Danger comes from specially prepared HTML messages. For more information on this threat please consult:,127229-page,1-c,emailsecurity/article.html
We can relieve our users. Having its own self-supporting HTML view module - The Bat! can not be damaged through this critical vulnerability. The Bat! email client does not use Windows modules for viewing HTML; thus, the module protects The Bat! users from all the attacks directed onto Microsoft products. You can freely continue using The Bat!, view HTML as usual (without using plain text view option) and stay sure of your data security.
