Here it is my turn to contribute to the Shavlik blog, and I am stricken with “bloggers’ block.” As I try to think of insightful things to say, (those who know me know I rarely say insightful things), nothing comes to mind but questions.

So in the spirit of acceptance of things that can’t be changed, let’s just go with the questions gig.

New IE Zero Day being exploited in the wild, what does it mean for Windows XP?

internet-explorer1_12

I don’t think anyone will deny that Windows XP was expected to become a target after the EOL, but we couldn’t even make it to the first patch Tuesday after the EOL of Windows XP before a Critical IE Zero Day was discovered.  On Saturday April 26th, Microsoft announced Security Advisory 2963983 in response to attacks discovered in the wild against IE 9, 10, and 11.  The vulnerability also affects IE 6, 7, and 8, so those users still running on Windows XP systems are vulnerable to this Zero Day.
