How To Avoid The XXE Exploit

Fortunately, there is a simple, painless solution that prevents XXE exploits from affecting your devices. Just avoid the Internet Explorer or Edge (Windows 10) browser, and the Microsoft Outlook email program. Firefox and Google Chrome browsers are not vulnerable to XXE. (Undoubtedly, readers will suggest Linux or other alternatives to Windows as equally good solutions to this problem.)
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington

“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”   -John Adams
