Microsoft announced Tuesday that a critical vulnerability has been found in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7. The flaw in the browser can allow cybercriminals to gain access to your computer and steal your passwords. Security experts are advising users to switch to an alternate internet browser until an emergency patch can be issued.

It is highly recommended that all Internet Explorer 7 users cease using the browser until Wednesday night.


Microsoft has now released a Critical Security Update for Internet Explorer. View the full Security Bulletin here.
