Bug in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer versions 6 - 11
Tuesday, Apr. 29, 2014
Internet security firm, FireEye, has identified a bug in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer versions 6 - 11 which can allow attackers to take control of computers using Microsoft’s popular web browser. Government and industry computer security experts recommend that people use alternative browsers, like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, until Microsoft releases a patch.
While there are technical work-arounds to mitigate the problem, SCU’s Information Security Office suggests following the experts’ advice and use an alternative browser until the patch from Microsoft is made public.
