Recently the media reported that versions 6 through 11 of Internet Explorer (IE) have security gaps that allow attackers to take complete control over another computer, should the owner click on a certain malicious website link. Microsoft is working on fixing this major security glitch.
What can you do in the meantime to protect yourself and your privacy from this glitch? Microsoft encourages users to enable firewalls and install anti-malware and anti-virus software. The other option, of course, is to use a different web browser, like Firefox or Google Chrome, until the IE glitch is corrected. Both can be easily downloaded in seconds. To make the transition more seamless, you can import your bookmarks from IE to Firefox or Chrome.
Microsoft has not yet announced when a solution will be finalized, so protect yourself as soon as possible.
