Hackers are targeting a flaw that affects IE 7, 8 and 9 users and could be exploited on XP, Vista and Microsoft’s latest OS release Windows 7.

“We are aware of targeted attacks potentially affecting some versions of Internet Explorer”
Microsoft Statement

Microsoft is urging Windows users to install a free piece of security software to protect PCs from a newly discovered “zero-day” security flaw in its Internet Explorer browser which hackers are exploiting to take remote control of computers.

With versions of IE in use on those platforms, Microsoft is offering free security software on its website (the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit, EMET, at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29851) while it works on rolling out an update to improve the web browsers security in the program.

Browsers such as FireFox and Google Chrome are safe from this flaw and won’t be effected. This is a Microsoft Internet Explorer flaw only.
