The Internet Explorer browser has a potentially fatal flaw that will allow hackers to gain control of computers
Microsoft has released a warning to users of Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP operating software that utilise the Internet Explorer web browser that their computers are vulnerable to attack from hackers.
While Microsoft are being coy as to the exact problem, the company has admitted that the security breach allows hackers to take control of a computer remotely. In order to become infected, a user has to visit a website that has been hacked, which they will not know about until it is too late.
Apparently Microsoft are working feverishly to try and get a “patch” to fix the problem, but in the mean time advise those who use the XP and Server 2003 software, to visit their support website to disable the part of the operating system that is causing the problem.
