Well..Sorry for the long gap. Was stuck with some work as usual
First of all wish you all a happy New Year!! A bit late to wish but better late than never
The recent (stale) news much around about the Google/Adobe hack a.k.a “Operation Aurora” is suspected to be executed successfully using a zero-day IE exploit. The exploit code is publicly available & Metasploit has also released a module for the same. So now you can expect lotta script-kiddies out in action attacking your corporate/home network.
Microsoft had suggested a workaround for the same earlier this week. But the exploit had been much in wild that it had to release an out-of-band patch for the same. We strongly recommend to implement this patch on higher priority. This vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user simply views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer.
