Take heart, Internet Explorer users. Now it appears that virtually every Internet browser program - not just yours - poses a security risk.

Just as we thought it was getting safer to use the Internet to bank and shop, crooks are finding new ways to steal your money.

I guess if your not careful, someone Phishing could wipe out your checking account or credit cards for an easy buck.

Shoppers use caution while buying on-line!
