A serious security flaw has been found in Internet Explorer. According to CBC, PCWorld, CNET, and a variety of other websites, this flaw "could let hackers take over your computer" (CBC). "The U.S. and UK governments on Monday advised computer users to consider using alternatives to Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer browser until the company fixes a security flaw that hackers used to launch attacks." (Reuters) and while all versions of Internet Explorer are vulnerable, PCWorld warns that "Windows XP is especially vulnerable".
