Today is the international Safer Internet Day 2010, promoting safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones. This year’s topic: “Think B4 U post!”.
It is one week ago that the latest Internet Explorer security problem came known. A security hole that offers hackers complete access to your computer, including all data stored on your hard disk. Of course, such news don’t spread a good feeling. Since last night, the security hole is finally closed. But how can you secure your own computer?
The German Federal Office for Information Technics (BSI) and the French Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) have warned users not to use Internet Explorer, making aware of an unpatched security hole in Microsoft’s browser.
