Microsoft has released a security advisory about a bug that affects its web browser software - Internet Explorer versions 6 through to 11.
 
The vulnerability means that all PCs running this web browsing software are unprotected, allowing remote access if a user clicks on a link at a malicious website, in an email or instant message. The vulnerability allows hackers to infect your computer with malware enabling them to 
take control of your PC.
 
Microsoft is working extremely hard to release a fix for this vulnerability, in the meantime Informatics strongly recommends that you 
don't use Internet Explorer. In its place please use other browsers such as:
 
Chrome
Firefox
Safari
 
It is also recommended that you change your default browser to one of the above more secure options. If it is imperative that you use Internet Explorer at home or within the University environment as always, be wary and vigilant of where you 'surf' and what you click on. Make sure that:
 
all software on your computer is up to date with the latest patches downloaded and installed your anti virus software is up to date
firewall software is enabled on your computer
 
If you require assistance with University supplied equipment please contact your faculty or department IT team for assistance.
