Internet Explorer Security Flaw; Consider Switching Browsers

A serious security flaw has been discovered in the Internet Explorer (IE) web browser, and ITS advises using an alternate browser until Microsoft releases a patch. If you are currently using IE for eData, you may continue to do so, although Firefox and Safari are also supported and strongly encouraged while this vulnerability exists.

This vulnerability applies to Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 on all versions of Windows. You should use an alternate browser (Chrome or Firefox) for any website that does not specifically require Internet Explorer, at least until Microsoft releases a patch.

Alternate browsers can be downloaded from their respective websites, or contact your department IT coordinator or the Solution Center for assistance with installing another browser.

Internet Explorer 8 will not be fixed on Windows XP. "Because of this, we recommend that you switch to Chrome or Firefox on XP machines unless a website specifically demands Internet Explorer," said Jeff Balvanz, IT systems analyst who works on security issues.

"For those people using Windows Vista and newer, this is a temporary crisis," Balvanz said. Microsoft will fix the vulnerability in Internet Explorer and they can go back to using IE. However, Microsoft has not yet announced when that fix will come; it may be several weeks.

For more information about the IE vulnerability, see the Microsoft TechNet article, the CERT Cybersecurity article, or contact Jeff Balvanz.


New chance for domain registrant and investor !
With 44% of the world's Internet population, China is a dominating force on the Web.

.WANG may not be recognizable to non-Chinese users, but "wang" is a translation of the

character 网 and represents the word "website." Since the character itself could not

be its own string (no one character strings were allowed), .WANG is meant as an

alternative for Chinese users across the globe. .WANG can be used by anyone, for any

purpose, making it a great extension for hooking into the Chinese global community.
