There's a new IE flaw- but I guessed we all got used to it by now. For all the people who still use IE, it's highly recommended that you use Netscape, Opera or Mozilla or other secure browser.

Personally, I got tired of all the software flaws which Microsoft refuses to repair, and the browser doesn't even have a nice interface and many options in it. So i switched it. I would be nice if we could un-install it, but unfortunately Microsoft wants us to keep this junk into the PC.

"The new flaw could allow the owner of a malicious Web site to deliberately misidentify a downloadable file, so a malicious program file could be made to appear as if it were a secure file. Visitors might think they were downloading a document based on Adobe's portable document format (PDF), for instance, but actually receive a malicious, self-executing program such as the new MyDoom worm."
