Google Hole Filled

The hole in IE that Chinese hackers used to hack Google is now fixed.

This particular exploit involves the hacker directing users to malicious Web sites where the real hacking work is done. A combination of bad publicity and a real security threat had Microsoft security programmers working overtime on a patch that covers IE 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Despite the fix for older versions of IE, Microsoft still recommends upgrading to IE 8, as well as Windows 7.
