IE Flaw Could Mean Access To Passwords

Again?! A recently discovered flaw in Internet Explorer could allow criminals to collect passwords and banking information. Microsoft is warning Windows users to be aware of the problem, with a manual work-around available, but there is no downloadable software fix available yet.

Users of Windows versions from XP to Windows 7 are at risk, Microsoft says.

Chester Wisniewski, of Sophos security software, noted on the company’s blog that there is “proof of concept code in the wild and it seems to be only a matter of time before we see criminals trying to exploit this flaw”.

If you are unsure of what to do, the best thing may be to switch to another Web browser for now, such as Firefox or Chrome. Then again … are there still that many who uses IE nowadays?
