Microsoft probably won’t fix exploited Internet Explorer flaw until next month

A Microsoft spokesperson says the company will fix a flaw in Internet Explorer’s scripting engine that attackers are using to corrupt it’s memory and run arbitrary code. The vulnerability, which effects versions 9, 10, and 11 of the browser, is unlikely to be fixed until February 11th. Users should avoid untrusted PDF, HTML, and document files, which are being used as an attack vector.

Avoid untrusted HTML, which includes almost everything on the web. Thus avoid IE.
