In case not everyone has heard about this, I thought I'd post info. about this vulnerability... It's a pretty serious one & it could allow hackers to take over your computer & install software and delete files from your computer from what I understand.
Read Microsoft's Security Advisory on Vulnerability in Internet Explorer here:
Don’t use IE (Internet Explorer) whatsoever. Use an alternate browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
If you do not have an alternate browser, Firefox is available here: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

Update Adobe Flash Player. Apparently this vulnerability has something to do with IE & Flash.
Adobe released an update for Flash today – it’s version 22.214.171.124. If you are not on this version, grab the update & update manually. Make sure you uncheck any boxes asking if you'd like to install a toolbar or software of any kind (including McAfee).
Keep an eye out for any updates from Microsoft… They are currently working on this & the only patches that have been released so far are for Win 8 & Windows Servers.
Note: If your operating system is Win XP, consider moving to a newer computer with Windows 7 or 8 -OR- buy an upgrade & upgrade to Win 7 or 8. Microsoft will not be creating a patch for Win XP… They made the decision to stop supporting Win XP a couple years ago & that went into effect April 8th.
