Patch Issued For Internet Explorer Zero Day Vulnerability
We are providing an update to the Threat Alert, issued earlier this week, regarding the zero day vulnerability in Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser. Microsoft has released a patch for all affected versions of the browser. Microsoft Windows customers that have automatic updates enabled will not need to take any action because the update will be downloaded and installed automatically. If you are unsure if you are set up for automatic updates, please check here. For those manually updating, it is strongly recommended that you apply this update as soon as possible following the directions in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS14-021.
While Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, they have reversed course in this situation and have issued a security update for Windows XP users. Microsoft is advising XP users to migrate to a modern operating system, like Windows 7 or 8.1. Users that are unsure of which operating system they have can verify it here. Internet Explorer browser users are encouraged to update to IE 11 unless they have XP, in which case they can only update to IE 8.
If you do not have computer protection like SecureIT Plus, we strongly encourage you to add this level of security to your devices. For more information about how you can protect your PCs and mobile devices with Secure IT Plus, visit jamadots.com or contact your nearest customer service center.
