Attention! A new exploit affecting Internet Explorer was recently discovered by the Computer security firm FireEye. This exploit appears to be affecting Internet Explorer 6 through Internet Explorer 11. The Department of Homeland Security is suggesting that customers use a different internet browser.
Microsoft has said in an advisory that the vulnerability could allow a hacker to take complete control of an affected system, and then do things such as viewing, changing, or deleting data; installing malicious programs; or creating accounts that would give hackers full user rights.
Microsoft is currently working to patch this flaw. However, computers running Windows XP will not receive this update and will still be vulnerable as Microsoft no longer supports XP.
If you are concerned about this threat, Frontier is advising you to use an alternate browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari until the patch has been released. This is the best way to keep yourself safe. Windows XP users should be advised to no longer use Internet Explorer and to look into upgrading their PC in the near future. If you fell that you have fallen victim to this vulnerability we encourage you to contact the Frontier Secure team for assistance.
