Microsoft has announced a serious flaw in all versions of Internet Explorer, and is working on a patch, but for the interim, until the patch is released in Windows Updates, its makes sense to use an alternative browser such as Google’s Chrome, Mozilla’s Firefox, or Apple’s Safari. Maybe it’s a good day to try the Epic Privacy Browser, a Chrome variant.
Right now, using IE could allow an attacker to gain access to your computer by rerouting you or tricking you into going to an website where malicious software could be installed, and this would allow the attacker to remotely control your computer.Share
