Two Security Alerts
October 31, 2007 3:19pm CST
I just received notice of two new security threats if you use the Mozilla Firefox browser or IE7. Firefox is about to release a new version, after discovering problems with the latest version which was released not long ago. IE7 has been discovered to have a vulnerability that can allow your computer to be taken over and also spread viruses. Microsoft has not developed a patch for this glitch as of yet. We are all urged to be careful when surfing the net-paying special attention to links through emails. Please, be careful out there!

I always use firefox and I had an update for it about a week or so ago, I don't know if it addresses this vulnerability though. There are much much more threats against internet explorer out there though, whenever I use IE I always end up with problems. Firefox has to be the most secure.

I have a very reliable source, sparkster, and Firefox is set to come out with the new update very soon. That is what is strange. They just found the new problem since the latest update. I rarely use IE7 myself because it does have many vulnerabilities.
