Internet Explorer users, beware.

Postby Obsidian » January 22nd, 2010, 12:39 am

This is a video of the "Aurora" exploit, namely the zero-day exploit recently used to attack Google, Adobe, and other large companies.



Some time last year, this had happened then as well.
What did Microsoft say?

"It's only one vulnerability."

Well, here's another; many also believe that there are many, many more vulnerabilities waiting to be discovered in Internet Explorer.
And due to the proprietary nature of the code, they're all going to be found the hard way -- by people getting their systems hacked. Don't be one of them.

Looking to ditch IE? There's lots of more secure alternatives, namely:
  • Firefox 3.6
  • Arora
  • Opera
  • Safari
  • Google Chrome

There's some more as well, but those are the larger and more notable of the browsers.

I am one who uses firefox the only time I use IE is when i am testing my websites that I have created. Usually I have to change some code for the sites to be compatible with IE.
So many people still use IE it's a job that has to be done. It is amazing that with all the security updates that Microsoft produces for its products that they still do not have secure software on peoples computers. Windows XP since it's release has had probably over half a gig of updates and fixes maybe more, and still they have not finished.

It shows that the software that is produced is not fully operational or tested before being transported to computers.....who are the unpaid testers ? we are and guess what it is us who pays for it with our hard earned cash ! :roll:
