UK, US govt warns against using IE until bug is fixed

Washington, Apr 29: Governments of UK and US have reportedly told people to stop using Internet Explorer until Microsoft fixes zero day exploit bug.

The governments have raised an alarm because of the seriousness of the zero-day vulnerability exploit, which affects all versions of Internet Explorers.

According to CNET, the zero-day exploit allows attackers to install malware on your computer without one’s permission, and that could be used to hack personal information or gain control of the computer.

FireEye, the security firm that discovered the vulnerability, suggests that if users cannot switch or avoid using IE, they should disable the flash plug-in to be safe from the bug. (ANI)
