Security Updates for Internet Explorer (IE)

Internet is one of the most important tools in our day to day life. However, without proper knowledge and technical know how, we might get into trouble as well. Security analysts have recently alerted about the security vulnerabilities with Internet Explorer that allows hackers to gain access to your passwords, credit card information, etc.. Not long, Microsoft released updates for the same. This security update is rated Critical for Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, and Internet Explorer 7 according to the sources. The patches are available in several different downloads depending on what version of IE you're using and what OS (operating system) you're running, and not all of the downloads are pointing to existing pages yet, but they should hopefully all be rolled out prolly in a day or two.

If you don't update your browser (internet explorer) I am afraid you are in deep trouble. So, if your computer is it up to date this is the time to run you Automatic Updates. But make sure your OS is genuine Wink otherwise... do the manual update by downloading the specific updates from the download page.

If you don't have admin access to your system, please contact the administrator and educate him/her about this important news. Its a must update and I am guaranteeing you won't regret!

Should you have any questions/doubts, please feel free to ask here.
