UK and US Warned against Using IE

UK and US Warned against Using IE

The governments of both countries recommended computer users to switch to alternative web browsers from Internet Explorer, until Microsoft fixes a security flaw used by the attackers to hack into victims’ computers.

According to the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team, which is a unit within the Department of Homeland Security, the vulnerability in versions 6 to 11 of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer could cause “the complete compromise” of an affected system.

In a recently issued advisory, the UK National Computer Emergency Response Team told the UK users that besides considering alternative web browsers, they are better to also make sure their antivirus software is current and regularly updated. As it became recently known, versions 6 to 11 of IE are vulnerable, but they dominate desktop browsing, with more than a half of the world market using it. As a result, now there are a lot of people who want to download a different web browser. The options include Google’s Chrome or Mozilla’s Firefox. By the way, the last time that there was this sort of panic, Mozilla cleaned up, especially in the European Union.

A few days ago, cybersecurity software maker FireEye revealed that a sophisticated group of hackers has been found to be exploiting the bug in a campaign known as “Operation Clandestine Fox”.

Another concern expressed by the industry experts is that even after the software giant fixes the vulnerability; it won’t be available to people who are still using expired Windows XP. Microsoft has stopped supporting XP except for selected customers who pay for it. The market sees a reluctance of many businesses and users to switch from the aging OS even despite the warnings that its use might endanger their business’ health.

Embolism avatarHomeland security experts are a little late and far behind the rest of the world it shows that whilst Microsoft and its Fusion centres are right in bed with the NSA and all their affiliates the left hand does`nt know what the right is doing.

COMPRENDeDEFUNCT avatarim pretty sure ms issued a fix via updates just the other day. this story is over a week old, i think they even issued it to xp users too, despite no more support for xp, so at least they did something about it. that said ive used firefox for years.

Crash1 avatarI haven't used IE for INTERNET browsing for Nearly 20 years. The ONLY thing I use IE for is INTERNAL html viewing (it's blocked in my firewall). I've been a devout Netscape Navigator/Mozilla Firefox (and recently Waterfox ... the 64bit version) user for all that time.

I do admit to using the 'IE Tab 2' add on in Firefox on occasion, for pages that weren't written with Firefox in mind, and consequently don't render properly. But that's rare these days, with ~%20 of the world using the browser. Apparently pages written for Chrome render better than those written for IE, and Chrome (at ~%46) has a FAR bigger usage than IE these days and, as a result, most web pages have been updated with this in mind.

PILCH avatarTorch Browser is the one for me. It's the downloader's browser. Built in torrent client, media grabber and you can use apps from Google Chrome store. Together with Ad block, MyWOT, Webutation & Ghostery, it's the dogs bo--ox.

No avatar"I haven't used IE for INTERNET browsing for Nearly 20 years."

Then you haven't used IE. It's not even 19 years old.

SirSeedsAlot avatarlol Timbo. Very foolish to use IE even with patch. It's too high of a target and doesnt it still hook into the OS?

lovs2build avatar@PILCH Good choice on web browser! However adblock plus does all the same things as the other addons you mentioned in one tool.

PILCH avatar@ lovs2build. Gunna have a gander at ad block plus... Torch Browser has just improved too by adding Tourch Player. Lets you look at your torrent film as it downloads. Much like Bitcomet.

Lol, i bet you love to see ads everywhere then But honestly, beside that, i think they did a great job with i.e. in recent years. Still wouldn't give up on Chrome with adblock plus and a couple of other very useful add-ons tho.

Sammy1968 avatarJust for the record...People that use library's for free internet and use there computers have to us what they provide. In this case Internet Explore. It's about who paid for those said computers and software to begin with. Me, well, Firefox with some added security.

No avatarI found out that IE security flaw persists all the way from Windows 95 to current version Windows 8.1... I quit using IE about one year ago... I use Google Chrome and Ad-Block plus. I found that pop-up ad bothersome! so I downloaded this Ad-block in order to clean up the webpage by blocking these ad.
