    Internet Explorer hacked


    Any comments on this was on national news this morning !!

    ATTN: Microsoft Internet Explorer users !! Internet Explorer Security Flaw Lets Hackers Steal Files From Windows PCs on any Windows system ! An unpatched exploit in the Internet Explorer browser's handling of MHT files (IE's Web archive format) can be used by hackers to both spy on Windows users and steal their local data.
