There is a major web site vulnerability. Read more.

I'd suggest that people use Firefox or another web browser.

It was good of you to warn people about this flaw in Internet Explorer.

I think there will always be flaws to find and exploit in all software. Someone will always find a way. We can only be vigilant and try to keep up with current information.

Thanks.

Probably, but not using Internet Explorer is still a good idea.

I think it mainly affects computers using XP. MCST will no longer support it.

It affects all versions of Internet Explorer, right through I.E. 11. It will be worse for XPers because there won't be a patch, but will be for Vista and newer.

I haven't used IE in a long long time.

There is now a patch available. Some were saying if the problem was large enough that they would include XP--and they did! This doesn't take away the dangers of using XP, but at least I.E. is fixed.

I did download Chrome when this happened. After years of using I.E.,it was interesting, but I do like Chrome. It's good to have at least two browsers available.
