I am going to do something I don't often do in this blog.  I am going to quote more than the title of the article.

This is the subtitle of the article:  "Department of Homeland Security recommends avoiding Microsoft browser until vulnerability in IE6 to IE11 is fixed"

And this is the line that makes the warning important:  "As Microsoft notes, this is a drive-by class security hole: Your machine can be compromised if you simply visit an infected site."

Based on the article I am going to advise paying attention to this warning and avoid using Internet Explorer Versions 6 through 11 until this is fixed.
