Windows XP users at risk with new IE exploit

Following our previous post regarding Windows XP no longer supported by Microsoft, consumers and businesses who are still using Windows XP are now at risk with the latest vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. Microsoft has confirmed that no fix will be rolled out for Windows XP because support has officially ended and there are no plans to make an exception.

The remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2014-1776) affects Internet Explorer 6 to the latest version 11 on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

A temporary fix is to use a different browser other than Internet Explorer like Chrome and Firefox. Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding the latest security news.
