The IBM X-Force Threat Research Team has raised the Internet Threat Level to Level 2 following a Microsoft Security Advisory detailed a zero day vulnerability that affects all version of Microsoft Internet Explorer.  The problem lies in the way the IE code handles memory that has been released or not properly allocated. This could potentially corrupt memory and allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code at the same privilege level as the logged in user. In this podcast we talk directly with the IBM X-Force research team to discuss the vulnerability and recommended actions you can take to protect yourself and your organization.
