A new security flaw in Internet Explorer has been reported again. The security issue can allow criminals to take control of infected computers and steal vital information like passwords or credit card details.
Microsoft has requested Internet Explorer users to be careful while they try to resolve it. Internet Explorer is being used by 80% of all internet users.
Microsoft informed that, “Microsoft is continuing its investigation of public reports of attacks against a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer” and also mentioned that the security issue is present in all versions of Internet Explorer.
It is preferred that users use an alternative till the issue is fixed especially users who deal with bank accounts and online transactions and purchases. One good option would be Mozilla Firefox. Firefox 3.0 is loaded with cool features and powerful interface.
