Microsoft Internet Explorer Security Issue
Last week we reported that Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (versions 6-11) were vulnerable to a new security issue. Members were urged to avoid using Internet Explorer (IE) and to download another free browser such as FireFox or Chrome. Members were also reminded to not click on any links or open any documents from unknown sources.
Microsoft has fixed the security issue. For those receiving automatic updates from Microsoft, the security update will load automatically. Those who manually update are urged to do so immediately. It should be noted that Microsoft chose to also issue an update for Windows XP, though they decided to no longer support it. Microsoft continues to urge users to update their operating systems, as updates to Windows XP will not continue.
