ie8-iconA major security flaw was recently found by Guardian, which affected Internet Explorer 7, and all users with versions prior to it i.e Internet Explorer 5 and 6.

As soon as this flaw was found, the IE Team started working on it and asked everyone to avoid using IE and use other browsers like Firefox, Chrome etc.

And today, Microsoft released an official patch to this critical security flaw for Internet Explorer 7 and is asking everyone to update as soon as possible or hackers might gain access to your computer.

This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
