Microsoft Internet Explorer use-after-free vulnerability

As  you may be aware, a major security issue has been discovered with all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE).  Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 are affected. LINCS users should use alternate browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) for as much browsing as possible.

Microsoft has reported the attack is associated with all current versions of Internet Explorer, and hackers are actively leveraging this security issue to access computers.  Until further notice, please refrain from using Internet Explorer.

If you do not have these browsers installed, you can download them, from the following links:
