Anybody using Internet Explorer would be well advised to install this critcial patch from Microsoft:

Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for December 2008

if you don't want your passwords harvested.

More from BBC:

BBC NEWS | Technology | Serious security flaw found in IE

Of course a much better solution is to use Firefox.

Thanks. Something was updated automatically over the weekend. Do you think it's already done? How can I check?

Assume it's: MS08-073 - addresses a vulnerability in Internet Explorer (KB 958215)

That page isn't very helpful.

All it needs to have is:

This is the problem: blah.
Click here to update.

dcraig1 started this thread No, I believe it's not done yet. The MS page is an advance notice of a patch that is available supposedly on the 17th.

Not much use if your account has been emptied as a result of using IE

Why now shift to FireFox?
This is my suggestion.

The security update was only released at 1800 17/12 UK time and is critical for IE5-7 and beta versions of 8. It is KB960714, see
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-078 - Critical: Security Update for Internet Explorer (960714)

Updates received before that time definitely will not cover this security issue. Everyone with IE should get this. If your PC is set to Auto-Update you would have probably found the update any time you booted up Wednesday evening or later. If not, go to the MS site as above.
