The hits just keep on coming. A recent report indicates that the latest version of Internet Explorer leaks data from the address bar. As Ars Technica reports, "The bug allows any currently visited website to view any text entered into the address bar as soon as the user hits 'enter'. The technique can expose sensitive information a user didn't intend to be viewed by remote websites, including the Web address the user is about to visit. The hack can also expose search queries, since IE allows them to be typed into the address bar and then retrieved from Bing or other search services."
The solution is to stop using Internet Explorer. Users should use Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera or some other non-IE browser.
