Issue:

Microsoft announced a vulnerability in Internet Explorer that could allow remote code execution. The vulnerability may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer.

Solution:

Currently, there is no solution to correct the underlying issue but Microsoft has provided several workarounds that would help block known attack vectors before a security update is available. Microsoft also encourages users to follow the guidance in the Microsoft Safety & Security Center of enabling a firewall, applying all software updates, and installing anti-malware software.

On completion of their investigation, Microsoft will take the appropriate action to protect all customers, which may include providing a solution through their monthly security update release process or an out-of-cycle security update.
