Do not use Internet Explorer

The U.S. and UK governments on Monday, April 28, 2014 advised computer users to consider using alternatives to Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer browser until the company fixes a security flaw that hackers used to launch attacks.

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team, a part of Homeland Security known as US-CERT, said in an advisory released on Monday morning that the vulnerability in versions 6 to 11 of Internet Explorer could lead to "the complete compromise" of an affected system.

Microsoft is currently scrambling for a solution. But they will not make a fix for XP, as they stopped providing security updates for it earlier this month. They currently plan to leave XP unprotected.

Good alternatives to Internet Explorer are Google’s Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox. Neither of these products currently have this security issue. I use both of them regularly and find them to work extremely well. Just click on the link above to download either of these free browsers.
