(NEWSER) – A security flaw uncovered in Internet Explorer is so serious that users should consider switching to a different browser for now, the Department of Homeland Security yesterday warned. "We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem," said the department's Computer Readiness Team, which recommends a browser change "until an official update is available," reports USA Today, which notes that users can also avoid hackers by turning off Adobe Flash.
