    WEB users have been warned against using Microsoft's Internet Explorer
    (IE) because of a security threat.

    Two countries - France and Germany - have now issued warnings, while
    Microsoft has urged users to upgrade to IE8.

    Germany warned users Friday after a malicious code - implicated in
    recent attacks on Google - was published online, and now Certa, a French
    Government agency that oversees cyber threats, has warned against using
    all recent versions of the web browser.


    A translation of Certa's warning reads:

    "Pending a patch from the publisher, Certa recommends using an
    alternative browser."
