What, this is a
surprise? Have you been living under a rock?
Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user’s system, conduct cross-site/zone scripting and bypass a security feature in Microsoft Windows XP SP2.
The solution? Use a product other than Internet Explorer.
Easy and painless.
Plus, if you use something like FireFox, you get all sorts of neato Batman type of extensions. I will never go back to non-tabbed browsing again!
Oh, and FireFox has had something like 16 million downloads since last November.
Take back the web! Use FireFox!
