Microsoft just issued a terrifying VIRUS warning to ALL Windows users – Express.co.uk
This is because of how Microsoft has tightly integrated its Internet Explorer software into the Windows operating system (a move that triggered a long antitrust case).
Microsoft senior software developer consultant Pat Altimore issued the warning.
Posting on his blog, he wrote: “There are many components that constitute the browser.
“The browser application uses these OS components for script execution, rendering, HTTP requests, etc.
“When you upgrade the browser, you potentially upgrade all of these components.”
