URGENT! Pay Attention: Vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer Announced

Internet Explorer Vulnerability (April 28, 2014) — A significant vulnerability in Microsoft’s IE (Internet Explorer) was detected this past weekend that could affect your computers and business security. 

NOTE:

  • All versions of IE 6 through 11 for Windows are affected.
  • No patch is available as of today (28 April 2014).

This newly discovered exploit could be used against Microsoft’s web browser, Internet Explorer (IE).  The browser may inadvertently access an object in memory that was previously deleted. The memory may be corrupted in a way that allows a cyber criminal to use a code to target your computer.

Microsoft plans to release a security update, but it won’t protect you if you use Windows XP.  With the dropping of support for XP, we believe that we’ve had the first of many attacks that will be targeting Windows XP.

What Should You Do?

  • Don’t use Microsoft’s IE (Internet Explorer) on any computer.
  • Use an alternative browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox.
  • When the patch is issued, it won’t apply to XP users-ever!
  • If you are an XP User, use an alternative browser-forever!
  • Think seriously about upgrading your XP machines.

In the meantime, you can visit Microsoft’s site for more information: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/2963983.aspx
