    With the way they're pushing MS accounts and Edge, they should take this bug seriously. I use IE only for facebook and twitter and don't login with my MSA so I'm not in the least bothered.

    Why was the MS guidance not cited? Did they try to see how effective their guidance was? Admit this flaw is serious but what a hack job of an article. No useful information at all.

    the useful information is to refrain from using edge or ie at the moment if you are logged onto your MS account with your w10 machine.

    pretty useful information for people who like using windows 10. unlike me.

    This is totally overblown and easily avoided. I log in with my MS account, use IE as my default browser and Edge for a few things, and use Outlook 2007 for email. I will continue doing so. If it was a real problem, MS would fix it. The fact that they said it's not necessary speaks volumes to me.
