Security Flaw in Internet Explorer versions 6-11

Microsoft has announced a new zero-day flaw that exists in Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6-11.  This flaw can be exploited to run programs on the computers of unsuspecting users.  These programs are likely to be hidden malware that can take over your machine or steal your personal data.

Microsoft is working to resolve this flaw, however no timeline has been given on when this might occur.

So what do you do? Do yourself a favor and protect your data.  Don’t use Internet Explorer.  Use an alternative like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or even Apple Safari.
