Internet Explorer vulnerability


If the Heartbleed bug wasn’t enough, it has now been reported that Microsoft has found a major vulnerability in every version of Internet Explorer dating back to Internet Explorer 6.

The flaw is being called a serious “Zero Day” vulnerability by security company FireEye, which claims it affects more than 56 percent of the world’s web browsers currently in use.

It’s a remote code execution vulnerability.  This means a computer hacker can make a target computer run software after a successful attack. “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,” Microsoft’s alert reads. The phrase “arbitrary code” means pretty much any software that the attacker chooses to run.

THIS IS SERIOUS.

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning to all computer users to STOP using Internet Explorer immediately.  This is especially important to anyone using the now unsupported Windows XP Operating System.  As far as we know there will be no security patch for Internet Explorer 8.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO-

If we have worked on your computer we have already installed the Mozilla Firefox browser.  If you are not using it, you need to start using it now.  If you do not have Mozilla Firefox installed on your computer you may download it @  www.getfirefox.com.  Please install right away.  You may import your favorites from IE into Firefox.

Hope this was helpful for you to have a happy and safe computing experience.

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

    Almost all of what you assert is supprisingly appropriate and it makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This particular article really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes. However there is one particular issue I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the point, allow me see exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.
