Dangerous Internet Explorer Vulnerability

Todd Ashabraner - Wednesday, April 30, 2014

     A new security vulnerability in Internet Explorer has been discovered.  It affects Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11.  It could lead to the complete compromise of an affected system. 

     The vulnerability, called CVE-2014-1776, has the ability to give hackers the same rights on the computer as the current user when the computer is infected.  So if the current user at the time of infection is an administrator, then the hacker will be also have the rights as an administrator on the infected computer.  At that point, the hacker will be able to install more malicious software on the computer.  They would also be able to add user accounts, remove user accounts, add unwanted files, change the contents of files, and even delete files from the infected computer.  Any computer that is still running Windows XP is especially vulnerable to this attack.  Support for Windows XP was discontinued by Microsoft earlier this month, so any fixes for this vulnerability will not include Windows XP. 

     The Department of Homeland Security is recommending that everyone should “consider employing an alternative Web browser until an official update is available.”  The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), a part of the Department of Homeland Security, is recommending that all users enable Microsoft EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit).  It is a utility that helps prevent vulnerabilities from being successfully exploited.  It supports every Microsoft operating system from Windows 7 and up.  You can download it here.

I have been investigating this theme for around 3 weeks now and this really is the first blog which actually makes perfect sense. Why is it really hard to gather reasonable information and facts relating to security and safety today? Definitely value the energy you invested putting your concepts in to words so newbies such as myself can take action. Maybe there is a part two on your post? Thank you again!

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if
all website owners and bloggers made just right content as
you probably did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

We've been making use of ADT Security for the past six years and was confident I had been spending far too much. There are several high-quality security alarm monitoring alternatives to be found which happens to be simply about half the amount for the identical level of service. Worth checking out in order to save bucks mainly since several don't require any long term contract that the big guys need. Shame.

Do not use “#” in URLs. Googlebot does not support index URLs with “#” listed.
