Homeland Security says Don't Use Internet Explorer
By Joe Gullo
A security breach has Internet experts and the Department of Homeland Security warning people not to use Internet Explorer to browse the web.
Typing on a keyboard is tap dancing with danger for some Internet Explorer users. The flaw impacts Internet Explorer versions six through 11.
A hacker can gain access to hard drives, key strokes, Internet history, etc. if you click on a bad link.
In a very rare move, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning Tuesday telling people to stay away from Internet Explorer until Microsoft develops a fix.
Microsoft typically releases patches on the second Tuesday of the month. They didn't give a timeline for this fix, but sent a statement saying:
At this time we are aware of limited targeted attacks. We encourage customers to follow the suggested mitigation outlined in the security advisory while an update is finalized.
