You know the only thing that really surprises me after all these years is that every now and again I’m surprised by Microsoft security holes:
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.
The flaw lets criminals commandeer victims’ machines merely by tricking them into visiting Web sites tainted with malicious programming code. As many as 10,000 sites have been compromised since last week to exploit the browser flaw, according to antivirus software maker Trend Micro Inc.
I thought the yahoo page on my sister-in-law’s infected PC had a Chinese flavor to it. Guess I was right. This is what firefox is for.
And if you don’t have a secondary browser on your system. Get one, I don’t care which.
