Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) security flaw

Filed under: Computers, Security — Tags: — zundel @ am

I posted the first public warning of this to my Facebook wall on Sunday.

Nasty Data-Stealing Bug Haunts Internet Explorer 8

Microsoft had plenty of time to fix this before it became public.
They still have done nothing in the past few days.

Microsoft investigates public IE CSS XSS flaw; Twitter, Hotmail vulnerable

This is a serious vulnerability.

Stop using Internet Explorer.
Use Chrome or Firefox.
They fixed the problem.

[Yet another example why I stopped using anything from Microsoft years ago. They don’t take their users’ security seriously. Many better alternatives exist.]
