Microsoft Security Lax?

Microsoft IE security lax?

If you are Microsoft Internet Explorer user to navigate the Web then you might want to listen up as Microsoft has issued a security advisory. This official security advisory explains that the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser could put you at risk. McAfee, a leading security software maker, has been investigating the China-based cyberattacks that prompted Google to threaten to pull out of China this week and has come to the conclusion that Microsoft may be to blame. Microsoft released this security advisory:

Microsoft is investigating a report of a publicly exploited vulnerability in Internet Explorer. This advisory contains information about which versions of Internet Explorer are vulnerable as well as workarounds and mitigations for this issue.

The NYTimes has been reporting that Microsoft is to blame. This obviously is not good for Microsoft, especially in a time when there are other browser options like Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome.
