Zero-Day Flaw in IE May Be Connected to Google’s "State-Sponsored Attacks"
Microsoft has recently released its June 2012 security update and with it the company also released an advisory to warn customers of a serious zero-day exploit that affects Internet Explorer. While there isn’t a permanent patch for this issue, the Redmond company has made available a “Fix it” solution.
In order to exploit the flaw, an attacker has to host a website that contains a malicious webpage. The cybercriminal would have to social engineer the victim to convince him/her to visit the domain.
