Serious security flaw found in IE 7, also known as zero-day exploit.internet_explorer_7_logo

With the web browser being the main application that many people use the majority of the time while being on a computer, hackers are always trying to find new vulnerabilities that can exploit, and they found a big one recently.

Internet explorer, which is shipped with Microsoft windows, has the largest user audience of all web browsers, steaming ahead with 46% (this November from W3Schools) which is a great surprise to me, as I still thought IE still owned 80% of the browser market!

Now, this is scary since this security flaw is pretty harsh, as it allows hackers/ criminals to take control of people’s computers stealing there passwords and login credentials.

Other browsers are safe from this exploit, including Firefox, opera, safari and chrome, you are advised to switch as soon as possible, how about now?

Firefox is a very secure and an amazing web browser, plus it’s FREE, also being supported by 44% of the world’s web accessing people, which is pretty neat.

    They own 80% of the market. IE7 has 46%. People believe it or not still use IE6. There is also IE8.
