You may have heard that a serious security flaw in Internet Explorer was announced this past weekend. It allows hackers to gain complete access to computers using Internet Explorer – they can install malicious software, break into the user’s accounts, etc.
The bug affects all versions of Internet Explorer, from 6 through 11, and Microsoft has not yet found a solution to the problem.
The U.S. Department of Homeland security recommends not using Internet Explorer until a fix has been found.
If you are unable to stop using Internet Explorer, disable the Flash plugin on your computer.
To disable the Flash plugin:
– In Internet Explorer, click on “Tools” and then “Manage Add-ons.”
– From here, disable the Flash plugin.
