70 percent of business users vulnerable to latest Internet Explorer Zero-Day

Steve Ragan | Sept. 20, 2013
Microsoft alert says all supported versions of Internet Explorer contain a zero day vulnerability that is being actively targeted online, and 70 percent of Windows business users are impacted

Microsoft is encouraging IT administrators to install the FixIt patch ( CVE-2013-3893 MSHTML Shim Workaround) to mitigate potential damage, until a proper fix is issued. The FixIt only applied to 32-bit installations, so other mitigations such as EMET 3.0 and 4.0 are also encouraged.

Unless Microsoft issues an out-of-band patch, the next round of security patches from Redmond are due October 8.
