Hi Folks it your local computer repair shop with another tip!

On December 29th, 2012 Microsoft released Security Advisory 2794220 regarding an issue that impacts Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8. Currently they are only aware of a very small number of targeted attacks at this time. This issue allows remote code execution if users browse to a malicious website with an affected browser. This would typically occur by an attacker convincing someone to click a link in an email or instant message.

Internet Explorer 9 and 10 are not affected by this issue, so upgrading to these versions will help protect you from this issue.

Now is a good time to upgrade from your older brower configurations. To check what version you are running take the following steps:
1) While in internet explorer select the help button up top
2) Select about – This will tell you the version of IE you are running
