Security risks swell for Microsoft’s Explorer: From the Gee, That’s Obvious Department.

Using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Web browser to surf the Internet has become a marked risk — even with the latest security patches installed.

That’s the upshot of the discovery of yet another Internet Explorer security hole being exploited by intruders bent on swiping personal information from unwitting Internet users.

Again, I ask: if you’re still using IE…why?



  1. Homeland Security has also stated that IE should be considered a ‘security risk’. Microsoft said of the issues: “In the meantime, we have provided customers with prescriptive guidance to help mitigate these issues.”

    Best translation from SlashDot: “After all those horses get out of the way, we’ll have your barn door fixed in a jiffy.”
