A division of Homeland Security called CERT, The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team, has recommended that everyone stop using Internet Explorer due to a ”use-after-free vulnerability, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.” Basically all Internet Explorer versions 6-11 may be affected especially IE9 and IE10.
Instead of targeting victims one by one, codes infect a victims computer after visiting a website where hackers have injected code. The company who exposed this vulnerability, FireEye Research Labs,” identified a new Internet Explorer (IE) zero-day exploit used in targeted attacks. The vulnerability affects IE6 through IE11, but the attack is targeting IE9 through IE11. This zero-day bypasses both ASLR and DEP. Microsoft has assigned CVE-2014-1776 to the vulnerability and released security advisory to track this issue.”
Until a patch is available, please stop using Internet Explorer to prevent any risk to yourcomputer. I am Lynette Henk, XO healthy chocolate consultant. I can be reached at 941-216-5727 or at [email protected] You can also visit my healthy chocolate website at GoColdPressed.com.
