Just to let you know that a major security vulnerability has been found in all latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. This may lead to your computer being hijacked and used as a spam sending robot, or the infected system can steal your passwords and other personal information.

There is NO update available to this problem from Microsoft. Security company F-secure lists this as "extremely dangerous" vulnerability.

It is recommended to:
a) Change the browser (www.firefox.com for example)
or b) Increase the IE security levels to max.
