Security Risks

If you look into this page, it will tell you that the trio which comprises of IE8, Firefox 3.6 and Safari 4.0 were hacked into without much of a problem. That leaves us with two browsers among the rest being "not hacked".

That would mean that both Google Chrome and the Opera 10 are still "alright" to use. I'm sure that Google would always have to patch their browser just in case of an attack. I was really shocked that someone could hacked into a fully patched Windows 7 using the vulnerabilities on IE8 itself. Wow...

Just think about security, guys!!! You do need to have at least an up to date antivirus system and if it is possible, a firewall on your pc/laptop.
