Recently, Microsoft reported a dangerous bug in Internet Explorer that should instill caution into users. The bug reportedly “may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer.”

This essentially means that by getting you to visit a malicious website, hackers can remotely control your computer and gather or ruin sensitive information. Microsoft has issued instructions for a workaround of the bug, but they are extremely technical and difficult to execute for non-IT individuals.
