Microsoft browser switch could lead to hack attacks.

European Internet Explorer users invited to choose another browser.

IT security and data protection firm Sophos is warning that hackers could take advantage of an initiative that next week will see millions of Internet Explorer users invited to choose an alternative browser.

Following a legal tussle between European Union anti-competition watchdogs and Microsoft, the software giant will begin to display a message on the screens of Windows PCs across Europe, suggesting they use the browser of their choice rather than Internet Explorer by default.

The first that most users will know is when a dialog pops up headlined "An important choice to make: your browser", followed by a kiosk of alternative browser choices including Google Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox.
