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.
