    Dec 16, 2008, 7:01 AM - IE Security Flaw Warning #1

    I've been posting this on various sites to ensure it gets seen by as many people as possible.

    The news has been showing details of a MAJOR flaw with all versions of Internet Explorer. Seems that anyone anywhere using IE can find that all their information on their computer can be accessed by others!
    Experts are recommending that people switch to other browsers such as Firefox (which is better anyway)

    Here's more details:

    IE Security Flaw

    Hope no one here gets hit

    You would think a situation like this, they would of fixed it in a day... Also, on a side note, they said the Major flaw was in I.E. 7, but yes, the prior versions may be at risk as well. I don't believe I upgraded to IE 7. But, I may DL Firefox when I get home anyways. Also, they noted they found this out 6 days ago! They may be slacking a lil.

    ....along with their many other things, I'm using Safari 'til this MS thing gets fixed....besides Safari loads faster than IE OR firefox. It's OK and not my favorite, but it's a good alternative when in need.

    It just blows my mind that these types of things can still occur in this day in age.

    Make sure your Messenger Service in Windows Services not on Automatic but Disabled. It uses Port 80 and it's what XP uses to remotely connect users to their home PC. I think it's what the hackers used to shut down Bill Gates presentation for Windows XP a while back. I use Safari on my Mac and had no problems with it.

    Yeah, really.... ppl still use IE?? I haven't used it in almost a decade. But for those of you who do, they released the patch...

    But don't bother. Its time to switch to Firefox by now anyway if you haven't already.

    Happy Holidays
