    Microsoft warns about Internet Explorer’s security flaw

    Post by Meesh on Sun Feb 06, 2011 7:53 pm

    Speaking of internet browsers and their security, Microsoft has found yet another security flaw in their browser and have been honest to admit it, probably due to its potential severity. According to Microsoft, there’s a loophole in Internet Explorer that can be exploited by hackers allowing the stealing your personal information or even the potential to gain access to users’ computer. Sadly, this bug effects all version of Internet Explorer and it is actually located within Windows itself which means that there are about 900 million people that could be affected by this security flaw. As for solution, we’re still hoping to see the official solution, but so far Microsoft has released a patch that claims to block all attempts of exploiting this flaw.

    Although its the most popular browser, Internet Explorer is still as vulnerable as it has always been and if you prefer not to use alternatives, you should probably download this patch before the complete fix becomes available.
