GREENSBORO, N.C. (9/12/11)--International wire service provider Western Union Business Solutions announced that it no longer will support the use of Internet Explorer 6 (IE), according to First Carolina Corporate CU. The Greensboro, N.C.-based corporate said it had received this message from the provider: "Based on current usage reports as well as the recent recommendation from Microsoft, Western Union Business Solutions will soon discontinue support for IE 6 for our Online RX for Corporate accounts. This will allow us to focus our support efforts on more commonly used Internet browsers and help to promote our clients' online safety." The corporate encouraged credit unions to take the necessary steps to ensure their international wires processing does not experience a service interruption. Credit unions' browsers will need to meet the minimum standard of IE 7 as of Sept. 30, said the corporate. After that time, credit unions may be able to access their account through IE 6 but likely will encounter safety and formatting issues. Western Union Business Solutions' message said it would continue to support IE 7 and 8, and as of Sept. 30, IE 9.
