So is it time to drop Internet Explorer as a corporate tool?

Another month and another IE security vulnerability. The browser that just keeps on giving. To the criminal gangs able to exploit this browser.

The latest is yet another javascript vulnerability as reported by>  http://www.alienvault.com/open-threat-exchange/blog/latest-internet-explorer-0day-used-against-taiwan-users

Microsoft do have a little fix tool out for this> http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/archive/2013/09/17/cve-2013-3893-fix-it-workaround-available.aspx

Apparently a more comprehensive fix is scheduled for the next release of patches on Patch Tuesday (8th of October 2013).

Or…use Firefox with noscript and adblock in your corporate environment. Unless you want to be the next target for a bunch of hackers for hire.
