Please take note if you are using Internet Explorer!

Dear Maplers,

More than two million computers worldwide have been infected because of a major security flaw in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer web browser, the software giant has admitted. If you are using Internet Explorer(any version), please visit Microsoft website to patch your browser.

The problem, first revealed last week, allows criminals to hijack computers and steal passwords if the user visits an infected website. As many as 10,000 sites have already been compromised to take advantage of the flaw, according to anti-virus software producer Trend Micro.

So far the websites have largely been used to obtain computer game passwords which can be sold on the black market. But there are grave fears that cyber criminals will exploit the “zero day” vulnerability – so-called because it has not been fixed yet – to steal people’s bank details.

The Administration Team urge players to patch their Internet Explorer as soon as possible to prevent any losses of game account login credentials.
