Internet Explorer 0-day

Still using Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8?

Targeted zero day attack being used against Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8

Microsoft have published a security advisory for a zero day attack being used against a “targeted audience” using Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8. This atypically means corporate or business users still locked in to using these older browsers.

Home users running XP should be looking to use another browser as their primary method of browsing the web, and corporate security staff should review Microsoft’s recommendations to build a layered defence to protect staff.
