Submission + - France Tells Its Citizens To Abandon IE (

Freistoss writes: "Microsoft still has not released a patch for a major zero-day flaw in IE6 that was used by Chinese hackers to attack Google. After sample code was posted on a website, calls began for Microsoft to release an out-of-cycle patch. Now, France has joined Germany in recommending its citizens abandon Microsoft's much-maligned browser altogether, rather than waiting for a patch. Microsoft still insists IE8 is the "most secure browser on the market" and that they believe IE6 is the only browser susceptible to the flaw. However, security researchers warned that could soon change, and recommended considering alternative browsers as well."
