Keep in mind that we are targeting the vulnerability.  As such, the 
server could be responding with possible vulnerable code relevant to IE, 
and this rule doesn't check User Agent.  If you're not running any IE in 
your environment, you may want to consider commenting out the 
browser-ie.rules.  Hope that helps.
