Internet Explorer security flaw exposed!


A serious security threat was discovered in Internet Explorer that could infect computers with malware. Microsoft released a temporary quick fix that addresses this critical issue and a permanent fix is scheduled to be released on Friday 9/21/2012 via Windows Update service. The vulnerability was spotted last week by a security researcher when his machine was infected by a malicious code known as “Poison Ivy”. Security software companies have hurried to provide updates to anti-virus products to protect their customers from this threat. Make sure to update your Windows machine on Friday to protect your computer. For more information, see the below links to the original articles by Network World & MSN technology websites
