It has been brought to our attention that there are currently some issues with Internet Explorer. The flaw was spotted last week when hackers started attacking users of IE 7. According to reports, the best way to deal with this flaw is:
• Change the program's internet zone security setting to "high". This should protect against all known exploits of this vulnerability by disabling scripting and disabling less secure features in IE. It is, however, likely to slow down a user's web experience.
• Log out of your computer and create a new user account which has limited rights to change the PC's settings. Log in as that user. This should reduce the chances of anyone being able to exploit the flaw should your computer become infected.
• Keep antivirus software up to date. This is likely to have only limited effect as most antivirus software packages only investigate files that are downloaded from the internet, rather than looking at every page visited.
• Switch to another browser, preferably Firefox. This is by far the best option.
