Recently, I’ve been hearing a ton of tweets on Twitter about Google’s accounts being hacked by Chinese hackers. I guess it turns out security flaws in IE has been at fault. My suggestion? Use Firefox or Google Chrome, I find these new browser are faster and better than IE.
Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security is urging people to stop using Internet Explorer because it isn’t safe and to find another web browser instead.
The warning comes after Microsoft admitted that it was a flaw in Internet Explorer that allowed Chinese hackers to get into Google sites recently.
Microsoft, however, maintain that there is nothing to worry about for the general user and do not support the warning from the German government.
