Serious flaw in Internet Explorer not fixed yet (according to AP):
Users of all current versions of Microsoft Corp.’s Internet Explorer browser might be vulnerable to having their computers hijacked because of a serious security hole in the software that had yet to be fixed Monday.
Seriously, people: if you are still using internet explorer, please take a moment right now to install firefox instead, for your sake as well as all of ours.
One key problem with Microsoft Internet Explorer is that it is “closed” – only Microsoft employees can see the code. Firefox is open source – so any mistakes like these can be identified and fixed long before they do any harm.
Update (Tuesday afternoon): Microsoft, to its credit, is going to issue a patch tomorrow.
