Major Security Hole in Internet Explorer

17 December 2008 ~ 1 Comment

Great news for web developers around the world! This is the break that we have all been waiting for!

It appears that ALL VERSIONS of Internet Explorer has a major security flaw. The said flaw is already in wide use as a tool to steal online game passwords, with some 10,000 websites infected with the code need to hijack the hole in IE.

I strongly advise you NOT to use any version of Internet Explorer for the time being until Microsoft fixes everything. Other browsers that are not affected are of course Firefox, Chrome and Opera. Microsoft said that they’re already working on the fix but did not set any date. They offered suggestions for a temporary patch, including setting the Internet security zone to “high” and some complex workarounds (however some reports state that the workarounds do not work).

Again I suggest that you switch from Internet Explorer as soon as possible!
