Over the last weekend,The Internet Explorer bug,  is the first high-profile computer threat to emerge since Microsoft stopped providing security updates for Windows XP earlier this month. That means PCs running the 13-year-old operating system will remain unprotected, even after Microsoft releases updates to defend against it. Until Microsoft does fix the flaw, versions 6 to 11 of Internet Explorer remain vulnerable across all operating systems.


Seeing this the governments of US,UK and Australia advised avoiding Microsoft Internet Explorer until the bug is fixed.The governments of these three countries have put up their efforts in different ways so that minimum percentage of people get affected online. Doudoune Canada Goose Homme

Versions 6 to 11 of Internet Explorer dominate desktop browsing, accounting for 55 per cent of global market share, according to research firm NetMarketShare.”An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system,” Microsoft said in a security advisory. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Botezatu has suggested that users not use Internet Explorer on Windows XP in the future and that they instead use an alternative web browser. Security experts have long been advising users to install Windows 7 or 8 before Microsoft Corporation  closed its support for Windows XP.
