Exclamation Safer Computing: 03/010/2017


Independent security researcher Manuel Caballero has revealed an unpatched vulnerability in Internet Explorer that could allow a malicious attacker to capture sensitive information that you would never intentionally share with a website you are visiting – such as where you plan to visit next on the internet, or what terms you might be searching for on the internet: http://www.brokenbrowser.com/reveali...ddress-bar-ie/

The vulnerability reveals the sensitive information by allowing a snooping website to snoop on the Internet Explorer browser’s address bar, capturing whatever you have typed there as soon as you press the enter key.

The security hole is present in the latest version of Internet Explorer, but does not affect users of other browsers including Microsoft Edge which ships with new installations of Windows 10.

If you were still waiting for a reason to switch to a more modern browser like Chrome, Edge, or Firefox, then this could well be it.

It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
