The BBC (and probably others) is reporting an IE Browser flaw that could open a back door on your computer. One good piece of advice that they are giving is:
In its round-up of the threat the Internet Storm Center bluntly stated that users should if possible "use a browser other then MS Internet Explorer until the current vulnerabilities in MSIE are patched."
I’ve been using Firefox lately and I’m quite pleased with it. This may be what I needed to push me back into the Mozilla pack for a while.
