Earlier today rumors were circulating suggesting that Germany were warning against users using Microsoft Internet Explorer, we are now hearing that France have the same opinion.
Certa are a government agency and they have “warned against using all versions of the web browser”, Microsoft recently told BBC News that Internet Explorer 8 is the “most secure browser on the market”
I often fix friends computers, and a lot of times their computers are running IE6 or IE7, I always either install Firefox or IE8 for the security benefits and increased functionality.
BBC experts suggest that as the recent malicious code is only targeting IE6 therefore the risk is minimal.
Personally I recommend installing all of the latest critical updates for your computer, this will ensure that you have the latest and most secure browser on your computer, alternatively install either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
