Millions of Internet Explorer users must update, or lose patches

Well...this is going to be interesting.

Millions of Internet Explorer users have just five weeks to upgrade to a newer browser before security patches dry up.

As many as 124 million users are running Internet Explorer 10 and earlier, and must update to a newer browser, based on figures extrapolated from the US Digital Analytics program. (An earlier editing error misstated the reasoning behind that figure.)
