Default Hackers just POURING through unpatched Internet Explorer zero-day hole

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10...ely_exploited/

Quote:
An as-yet-unpatched zero-day vulnerability affecting Internet Explorer is being abused much more widely than analysts had previously suspected.

The vulnerability first came to public attention last week with the Operation DeputyDog attacks against targets in Japan, as first reported by net security firm FireEye.

Websense, FireEye and AlienVault have since reported more malware-flinging campaigns exploiting this vulnerability. Several groups are using an exploit that takes advantage of security bugs in Microsoft's flagship browser software to attack financial institutions and government agencies in various countries in the far East, using various Trojans and similar strains of malware.

When I think that my wife and my father-in-law still use IE...

Gold Medal for my father-in-law, who told me this week-end :

"Chrome is crap, it's the best to get viruses. I only trust IE".
Damn, the day I'll show him Xombrero, he'll make a heart attack
