Security vulnerability in IE: What to do

Monday, April 28, 2014

Internet Explorer logoInternet security professionals currently are keeping an eye on a new security vulnerability in Microsoft's Internet Explorer that could allow remote attackers to gain control of a user's computer.

Until Microsoft releases a patch for this new vulnerability, OIT recommends that you only use Internet Explorer for trusted sites that require IE for compatibility. For general Internet, use a different browser like Firefox or Chrome.

Mac users are not affected by this issue.

If you have any questions, contact the OIT Service Desk at 740-593-1222.
