Major Internet Explorer Vulnerability Discovered

Internet Explorer 10 LogoThis past weekend, Microsoft announced that versions 6 through 11 of Internet Explorer are vulnerable to attackers via “drive-by attacks” from malicious websites. Previously unknown, this security flaw allows attackers to execute harmful computer code remotely, enabling them to hijack vulnerable computers.

Internet Explorer users are highly encouraged to use an alternate web browser (such as Firefox or Google Chrome) for the time being. If users must use Internet Explorer for certain websites, make sure to only use IE for those website and an alternate browser for other websites and general web browsing.
