If you have not heard the news this month, theres a little spat going on between Google and China over hacking and such. Turns out one of the techniques used to hack Google and other companies was through a security exploit in all versions of Internet Explorer, known as the Aurora exploit. Microsoft has since issued an out of band patch to plug this hole, so please run a Windows update! This pretty much affects all versions of Windows and Internet Explorer. At this point I would like to encourage everyone to choose another browser, how about Firefox or Chrome? Much safer at the moment to use these.
