Microsoft warns Internet Explorer Users against Eminent Attack

Users of Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions have been urged to deploy a toolkit that could help protect their PC against a series of attacks hitting its system.

It was revealed earlier in the day by security forum Rapid7 that Internet Explorer was hit with a new zero-day exploit, which takes advantages of a security hole within websites to carry out attacks. This means that anyone using IE to visit a website that has malicious links could have their computer compromised.

The exploit is said to affect Windows XP, Vista and 7 systems.

The EMET aims to protect against this issue and should not affect usability of websites.

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon
    but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi,
      Wordpress is what we are using at the moment. It’s easy and very direct. Customization is very simple and you have the choice of using the free or paid version. Mind you, the free version will take care of most stuff you might want to do.

      We have not had any issues with using this platform.

Let's know what you think
