I was interviewed by RTE Radio 1’s Morning Ireland show about the latest vulnerability in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. The interview focused on the calls by the French and German governments for people not to use Internet Explorer until a patch is released and to move to a different browser instead. The full interview is available on RTE’s website.
Since the interview Microsoft announcedthey will release an out of cycle patch to address this issue. Also it is interesting to note that the Australian CERT, AusCERT, has a different view to the French and German governments on this issue and claim that the issue has been overblown. The Trend Micro Countermeasures blog also has some good guidance regarding how to deal with this vulnerability and indeed any other vulnerabilities that have no patches available.
