    Internet Explorer users take note: The FBI has issued a warning this week about a vulnerability in the most popular version of the Internet browser that could allow cyberattackers to take over a user's whole computer system.

    The blog of the Better Business Bureau urged "all consumers and businesses to pay close attention" to an FBI Cyber Security Advisory regarding Internet Explorer 8.

    The vulnerability "could allow an attacker to take complete control of an affected system," the FBI warning says.

    Microsoft has released a temporary fix.
