Internet Explorer threats

How do I download the urgent patch to fix the bug with Internet Explorer? How does a computer get infected by it? Is Firefox unaffected?

Always best to try the 'Search forum' box first.

Firefox is not affected.

If you have Windows update set to download updates, you should have received the fix by now. As Technotiger says, there are other postings re this issue.

Yes the threat is not to the operating system but to Internet Explorer 7.

The threat is to the OS via the browser !
