National Cyber Awareness System
Microsoft Releases Security Advisory for Internet Explorer


Original release date: May 07, 2013

Microsoft is investigating public reports of a remote code execution
vulnerability in Internet Explorer 8 and is aware of attacks that
attempt to exploit this vulnerability. This vulnerability may allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary code if a user accesses a specially
crafted website. Microsoft is actively working with partners to monitor
the threat landscape and take action against these malicious sites that
attempt to exploit this vulnerability.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review Microsoft Security
Advisory 2847140. Please note that the advisory indicates that the
workaround does not correct the vulnerability, but it may help mitigate
risk against known attack vectors.

US-CERT will provide additional information as it becomes available.
