SophosLabs, has uncovered two new sites which have been hit by the recently discovered Internet Explorer zero-day vulnerability - a community seeking independence from China, and an Iranian oil firm's website.
Microsoft has released an advisory on a new zero day attack against users of Internet Explorer. While a Fixit is available it may be best to avoid using IE for awhile.
The jobs website of a major international hotel chain is silently serving up malware to visitors.
And curiously, the security breach appears to be connected to other recent high profile attacks. Paul Baccas of SophosLabs looks deeper.
In what has all the hallmarks of a state-sponsored attack, the website of a European aeronautical parts supplier had been hacked, and had a zero-day Microsoft security vulnerability planted upon it.
Although security software can protect against this vulnerability, let's hope that Microsoft can release a proper patch against it - it's being actively exploited in the wild.
