    KB960714: Download a Fix for Internet Explorer 7 Security Issue


    I think you might have heard that there is a major security flaw recently found by Guardian, which affected Internet Explorer 7, and all users with Internet Explorer 5 and 6.

    As soon as this flaw was found, the IE Team started working on it and asked everyone to avoid using IE and use other browsers like Firefox, Chrome etc.IE Security Patch

    Microsoft has released an official patch to this critical security flaw for Internet Explorer 7 and is asking everyone to update as soon as possible or hackers might gain access to your computer.

    This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

    Download the following Patches:

    For more information and download links for Internet Explorer 5 and 6, visit the Microsoft Security Bulletin page.

      My best advice to all… Don’t download this update and waste your internet bandwidth. Download Firefox, its worth for everything..

      Luckily, I don’t use IE anymore. My first choice is FF and next is Chrome. IE is dying.

    5. Firefox is definitely king, although it can become sluggish if you’ve got loads of plug ins installed. The security of Firefox is what gets me though. Never scandal such as this!

      No doubt, many prefer other browsers other than IE, me also included. I only use IE when doing online banking. I didn’t access my banking account recently because the security holes in IE. Now, I can get back to my online banking activity.
