Security Series – Microsoft – Vulnerability in Internet Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution

Yet another attack going around….

It’s really simple to stop a lot of these attacks:

1) Don’t open emails from people you don’t know
2) If you do know the person, yet the message doesn’t make sense – DON’T open any links, call the person in question and ask
3) If you do get this type of email from someone you know, tell them about it so they can try to fix it.  If you don’t others in that persons contact list are at risk if they don’t practice the same safe computing as yourself.
 
IE6 and IE7 are both at risk as well as IE8 if you have changed the default security settings.  IE9 Beta is save from this attack.
