Not a year goes by without new critical vulnerabilities  are discovered, Internet Explorer is the most controversial web browser and has been for a long time.

Since it is integrated by default in Windows, it makes it one of the most used browser in the world, but also at greater risk.

Because of its close integration with Windows, many Internet Explorer vulnerabilities  manage to affect the system, and sometimes infect your machine without your anti-virus noticing.

More recently a new flaw has been found in Internet Explorer, allowing attackers to bypass your browser and send you on seemingly legitimate sites to steal information from you, such as your credit card, email,…. this  technique is called “phishing”

In general, we strongly advise you to use another browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

More and more government, banking sites, … are compatible with Firefox, again this is a very powerful browser supported by a community organization. (Mozilla Foundation)

After installing Firefox, in addition, add the most famous ad blocker in the world, AdBlock Plus: http://goo.gl/hnY8ue

Make sure, no matter which browser you use, it is up to date and contains no suspicious tool bars or unwanted search page.
