There was recently news of a vulnerability in every version of Microsoft’s browser that could Allow Remote Code Execution. Microsoft has released a patch for all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer from IE 6 to 11 — YES! That means XP is still getting a patch for this. BUT, this does not mean that you can go to any site and expect to be protected. You still need to practice caution when viewing new or questionable sites. The update is available now; So if you are not set for automatic updates or your company has to approve the updates on the server, get that fixed! If you cannot get the latest patch, we recommend using an alternative browser like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or Safari.
There are also a few other programs they offer that need a patch to Block Remote Code Execution. The latest Security Bulletins from Microsoft can always be found here:
