Internet Explorer flaw has not yet been fixed

  • It's not clear as to when the recently-discovered security flaw in Internet Explorer will be fixed. 

    As per the media reports, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security asked Americans keep a distance from Internet Explorer until a solution is found. "Users should also consider using alternative browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox; and ensure that their antivirus software is current and regularly updated," the United Kingdom's National Computer Emergency Response Team said. 

    The chief information officer at Prescient Solutions referred to it as being a great browser. "Every application out there today has some level of vulnerability or risk and needs to be constantly monitored and updated."

    Microsoft mentioned that no huge problems have yet been reported.
