Internet Explorer is being attacked again! A new “Zero-Day” vulnerability has been found and affects all versions of Internet Explorer. Microsoft is looking into it and a fix is likely coming soon. In the meantime, here is what they are saying…
According to the Microsoft website:
The vulnerability exists in the way that Internet Explorer accesses an object in memory that has been deleted or has not been properly allocated. The vulnerability may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer. An attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website.
Basically if you click on a malicious link the attacker can run any program they want! So if you are like over half the internet users out there and you haven’t already done so…[big_title small_margin=”no”]
