    Exclamation 20/9/12 Security Alert IE7, 8 and 9!!

    Please Be Advised:

    A potential vulnerability which, could allow a hacker takeover or intrusion via Internet Explorer 7, 8 or 9, is being addressed via an Important Automatic Update on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012. This is an out-of-cycle FIX to deal w/ the issue immediately. End Users should have machines set to receive Automatic Updates. However, if you do not (and even if you do) or, wrongly, have your machine off @ night, make sure, Friday (21/9) or Saturday AM (22/9) that this Update is put in or has been installed.

    This is IMPORTANT!!

    Please, exert due diligence regarding to this matter and w/out delay.

    The issue does not affect IE10

    Thank-you,
    Drew

    Drew,

    Thanks for the info. I am new here and apologize if this has already been asked. I am wondering if the fix Microsoft did out of order for IE9, or any of the recent updates, fixed this problem so it's safe to use IE9 again. I've switched to Mozilla, and like it. However, I've used IE for so long, I'm more comfortable with it. I'm just afraid to use it until someone in authority tells me it's ok.
    Thanks

    Yes, it was fixed. Check your Windows Update history for KB2744842 on or since 9/21/2012.
