Perhaps you don’t use Internet Explorer, you could still be at risk. Conduct patch install on IE today – 12th Feb 2020

Preface: If you try to open an .MHT file on a computer including Windows 10, or Windows Server 2012 R2 then it will attempt to load the file using Internet Explorer eventhough of the default browser in place!

Security Focus: Microsoft released an emergency security update on Monday (February 10, 2020) to fix a vulnerability in Internet Explorer (IE) designed to alert business customers. This issue occurs because the ‘scripting engine’ fails to properly handle objects in memory. Attackers can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting user of the affected application to view a specially crafted web page.

Remedy: For more details, please refer to official announcement – https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2020-0674

  1. It’s hard to find educated people on this subject, however, you sound like
    you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
