Post subject: All IE Versions Vulnerable To New Attack

Something all users of Internet Explorer (IE) should be aware of...


- PCMag- Security
Microsoft has updated the security bulletin the released last night for a new and serious Internet Explorer vulnerability. Initially it appeared that the vulnerability was only in Internet Explorer 7, but after further analysis it seems as if all currently-supported versions of IE are affected, including the betas of IE8.

The confusion may have come from the fact that the current attacks which brought the episode to light are IE7 specific. But further research shows that the underlying vulnerability is not.

Microsoft also added a number of new workarounds to the advisory. This list includes the old ones and the new ones:


* Set Internet and Local intranet security zone settings to "High"

* Disable Active Scripting or set IE to prompt for it

* Enable DEP (only hardware DEP will help)

* Use ACL to disable OLEDB32.DLL

* Unregister OLEDB32.DLL

* Disable Data Binding support in Internet Explorer 8

Just thought I would give you'all the 'heads up'...

The BBC interviewed M$'s spokesman on the matter earlier today.
When they asked him about switching to other browser's he was shocked and absolutely adamant that there really was no need to use any other browser and that in fact he'd just been reading how one browser was the subject of even more security flaws than IE.
LOL!
Good ole trustworthy M$.
