    Zero-Day IE Exploit Takes Control of PCs
    Exploit code for a critical flaw in fully patched versions of Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer browser has been released on the Internet, putting millions of Web surfers at risk of computer hijack attacks.

    The zero-day exploit, posted by a U.K.-based group called "Computer Terrorism," could allow a remote hacker to take complete control of a Windows system if the victim simply browses to a malicious Web site.

    Linux (forget what you heard about MicroSoft) is what's happening and will soon be, if not already, a major force
    in the IT industry. Thanks for the information AnAfrician.
