IE Security Hole Opens New Backdoor

Good lord almighty, Internet Explorer has been found to have a security hole so bad that loading websites with malicious JavaScript can allow attackers to take full control of a PC. According to that story:

Users are being told to avoid using Internet Explorer until Microsoft patches a serious security hole in it.

How many things like this does it take before people stop using IE altogether? Being told that just normal usage of a program may lead to your compter becoming a zombie and getting hijacked by scumbags is enough to make me not use that program. If you are using Windows, for god’s sake install Firefox and be done with it.
