Windows XP Users Should Avoid the F1 Key in IE

This is a very odd story coming to light, but we here at Infotech like to keep you well informed.

If you are currently a Windows XP user (which most of you are), do not hit the F1 key while browsing the internet in Internet Explorer. There are some sites out there trying to trick users into hitting F1, which will allow malicious code to be run on your machine. If you are on any other operating system or browser you are safe from the F1 threat. M$ is aware of the problem and will probably patch it at some point... just another reason to click that yellow update shield in the lower right corner of your screen.
