A major security issue has been identified with Internet Explorer 7, the most regularly used browser and the issue can also affect earlier I.E. versions.

Companies have put the alert into the public domain which means of course, Microsoft have got to work at a speed faster than light to get a secure patch up and running. Meantime, companies are suggesting that although other browsers may not be entirely risk free, it would be safer to use another browser rather than Internet Explorer.
