Internet Explorer Security Alert – News

New internet security warning, this one is an Internet Explorer Security Alert.

Yup, now after the Heartbleed Security Risks were widespread, there is news that Internet Explorer has had a problem going back MORE THAN A DECADE! Thanks to the folks who found this vulnerability (at the research firm at FireEye), we at least know about this problem… this problem is so terrible that no matter what Windows version you are using, it won’t prevent the hackers from utilizing this and uploading a Virus to your system.

News Boy with animated words "EXTRA"There is a warning out in the US and UK that you should STOP USING INTERNET EXPLORER until this browser bug is repaired!

The good news is that there are other browsers out there, personally I use Firefox from Mozilla. Unfortunately some sites I cannot use there forms etc with Firefox, luckily it’s few and far between, so for those few sites I will start using Chrome.

To keep up to date on all this information about hacks, viruses etc,  I subscribe (and not affiliated, nor are they sponsoring this post) to Newsletters from ZDNet, Kim Komando, and several other trust worthy sites. Kim Komando is handy for all this sort of information and she’s highly informative about tips and tricks for using your computer, etc. She even has a wonderful radio show and some other newsletters to subscribe to.
