Serious security flaw found in IE Found! _45301037_000882073-1

This has been posted on our site already by me but I feel like it needs a little more attention, as it can effect many of us. If any of you are using Internet Explorer stop using it and get a more secure browser. If you want to read more about it here's a couple links:

Microsoft is rushing out an emergency patch to fix a security
flaw that is believed to have affected tens of thousands of
websites. It's issuing a critical update in the next few hours for
Internet Explorer, its flagship browser. The flaw could allow hackers to take control of peoples' computers and steal passwords. Reports say that hackers in China are at the centre of the cyber attack, the most serious in the history of Microsoft's operating system.

UPDATE: The patch is coming Wednesday

If you use IE (eww) then you should definitley switch, because there is a new exploit, that allows people to steal important information from you (passwords etc). read this article i found about it.
The major press outlets are abuzz this morning with news of a major new security flaw that affects all versions of Internet Explorer from IE5 to the latest beta of IE8. The attack has serious and far-reaching ramifications -- and they're not just theoretical attacks. In fact, the flaw is already in wide use as a tool to steal online game passwords, with some 10,000 websites infected with the code needed to take advantage of the hole in IE.
Virtually all security experts (as well as myself) are counseling users to switch to any other web browser -- none of the others are affected, including Firefox, Chrome, and Opera -- at least for the time being, though Microsoft has stubbornly said it "cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw." Microsoft adds that it is working on a fix but has offered no ETA on when that might happen. Meanwhile it offers some suggestions for a temporary patch, including setting your Internet security zone settings to "high" and offering some complicated workarounds. (Some reports state, however, that the fixes do not actually work.)
Expedient patching or switching are essential. Security pros fear that the attack will soon spread beyond the theft of gaming passwords and into more criminal arenas, as the malicious code can be placed on any website and can be adapted to steal any password stored or entered using the browser. It's now down to the issue of time: Will Microsoft repair the problem and distribute a patch quickly enough to head off the tsunami of fraud that's about to hit or will it come too late to do any good?
Meanwhile, I'll reiterate my recommendation: Switch from Internet Explorer as soon as you can. You can always switch back once the threat is eliminated.
