New Security flaw puts ALL Internet Explorer users at risk, exposes Windows XP

If you’re still using Windows XP, a new security flaw discovered in Internet Explorer should be a real concern. Microsoft published a security advisory today warning its customers that a vulnerability in all versions of Internet Explorer (6 to 11) could let hackers gain full user permissions on your desktop, allowing them to install programs, view and delete data, and much more simply from visiting a website.

Anyone using Internet Explorer on a modern version of Windows will likely see a patch soon. However as Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8th, it will not be patched to protect it. This is the first known security flaw since that support deadline passed, and it bears true the warnings voiced previously voiced.

Windows XP is no longer secure, and it’s time to move on.
