Internet Explorer Security issues

Post  smegger on 2008-12-17, 07:26

Hi Guys, not sure if anyones aware but there is a security issue with IE that if you go to some websites can get your Username/passwords and CC details, as below, suggestion is to use another browser like Firefox instead until the release a fix

really I'm still on Ubuntu 8.04, you think it is worth the upgrade?

Why go back to IE?

8.04 is the LTS version but I always upgrade to the latest just because it's there. I run VirtualBox 2.1 now that it supports bridged networking for any app that requires windows (down to just 1 now).
Linux rocks Very Happy cheers afro

I always swear by Labrat_v 3, with the turnip add-on-applet, great post production ability to recreate the bit rate of Megasocks through the GUI and back end rectum pipe......

Get out more...... Very Happy

How about just switching to Firefox permanently? Very Happy

Make sure you upgrade to V3 tho, if you haven't already, as support for V2 (including security) has now ceased I believe.

But seriously, Internet Explorer?! affraid Apart from the regular security problems you hear about, I find Firefox so much quicker for everything, and the add-ons are great.

SuSe 10.1 for me. 11.1 Just came out yesterday, so time for an upgrade....
