Major Internet Explorer Vulnerability Empty
PostSubject: Major Internet Explorer Vulnerability   Major Internet Explorer Vulnerability EmptyTue Dec 16, 2008 2:35 pm

This is a major vulnerability that effects all versions of Internet Explorer on all Microsoft Operating Systems versions (including Vista and Windows 2008 server)

This is being taken seriously in the security world, I have received info from a firewall and anti virus provider (I can't name because this is due to work and NDA)

Microsoft is currently working on a patch, in the meantime in the very least make certain your antivirus software is up to date.

If you are using Linux, nothing to worry about. The very least you might have a issue if you use IE in WINE or Crossover in Linux. And it would be unlikely a takeover of your system would occur.
