    I think Microsoft said that the browsers were essentially the same, so I'm curios if that version is safe too.

    They're not same. Modern IE is unsafe but they rolled out an update AFAIK.

    Some scripts just don't run in WP IE and most of malicious content works that way. Also even if any code got into the system, it still won't have the file system access API's as only the apps who ask MS for it get it. It may remain dormant and get to your PC when you sync assuming the system doesn't recognize it and sanitize it.
    IN short, you're safe for now on WP.

    No, it wasn't. Modern IE still had flash, which was used as the attack vector.
