Germany Urges Public to Stop Using Internet Explorer
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:54:59 AM »
Achtung baby~! :) The Germans are marching against Internet Explorer~! :P


The German government urged the public on Tuesday to temporarily stop using Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer following discovery of a yet-to-be repaired bug in the Web browser that the software maker said makes PCs vulnerable hacker attacks.

It issued the warning as a researcher said he found evidence that suggests the hackers who exploited the flaw were seeking to attack defense contractors.

Microsoft said on Monday that attackers can exploit the bug in its Internet Explorer, used on hundreds of millions of computers, to infect the PC of somebody who visits a malicious website and then take control of the victim's computer.

The headline was better than the article, but thought a few people might get a laugh out of it anyways. :)
