German government warns against using MS Explorer


Recommended Posts

The German government has warned web users to find an alternative browser to Internet Explorer to protect security.

The warning from the Federal Office for Information Security comes after Microsoft admitted IE was the weak link in recent attacks on Google's systems.

Microsoft rejected the warning, saying that the risk to users was low and that the browsers' increased security setting would prevent any serious risk.

However, German authorities say that even this would not make IE fully safe.

Ouch! I bet Bill's upset.

Microsoft have issued an out of schedule update, presumably in response to this problem as mentioned in Camy's post. Our thanks to you Camy for fetching this to everyone's notice.

The update is available from the Windows update site or you may already have it if you use thier automatic update thingy.
