There’s a lot of geek-talk on that page, but the upshot of it is, if you’re a Windows user using Internet Explorer, any website you visit could be used by a malicious user to execute anything on your computer. Like reformat your drive. Or mail your Quicken account data to someone.

There is no fix for this yet.

Scary Stuff.
