IE 0 Day Exploit

12/12/2008 19:27

Microsoft reported a new "zero-day exploit" that affects most versions of the Internet Explorer browser. A zero-day exploit is a security vulnerability that is being exploited before the software vendor or public know that the issue exists. This particular exploit attacks flaws within Internet Explorer that can cause it to “exit unexpectedly, in a state that is exploitable”- in English: the attacker can take control of the computer.

Microsoft has documented security breaches with Internet Explorer 7, and has confirmed that the security vulnerability is present in Internet Explorer version 5 and higher. Microsoft is working on patch to resolve this issue, but it has not yet been released.

This exploit is dependent upon a user browsing to infected websites with Internet Explorer and cannot be triggered through email, instant messaging or other web browsers.

Until a patch is released and installed on your computers, this threat can be mitigated by taking the following steps:

  • Set your Internet Explorer security setting to “High” for the Internet zone. The following steps describe how to configure this:
    1. On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab, and then click the "Internet" icon.
    3. Under Security level for this zone, move the slider to High. This sets the security level for all Web sites you visit to High. (Note: If no slider is visible, click Default Level, and then move the slider to High.)

NOTE: This may limit the features of some websites. If these sites are required for your business, exceptions can be made for them if you contact your IT provider

 

  • Use a browser besides Internet Explorer. Other browsers such as Mozilla’s Firefox and Google’s Chrome do not currently have this security vulnerability.

 

  • Limit browsing to sites required for work.

 

Once released, the patch for this security vulnerability should be distributed through your standard patching process.

Subject: WikiFX Scam Alert

Esperio provides MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 platforms, which are the undisputed leaders in retail Forex trading. But you should know that a decent platform is not enough to confirm that a broker is reliable! Indeed, elaborate scams are well-funded, and they can afford to provide sophisticated software and many other tools, making the whole experience look legit. That said, the offshore nature of the brokerage, the lack of a license, and the Ukrainian warning are still the biggest issues, and Esperio remains a broker WikiFX will never recommend, notwithstanding the advanced platforms they have. So, to fully benefit from MetaTrader, its recommended to go for regulated brokers.

??The trading risks are exceptionally high as the default leverage is 1:500, and the ratio can be increased to 1:1000 upon request. Both ratios have tremendous profit potential, but the risks are so high that you may blow your account within minutes, if not seconds! Hence, the ultra-high leverage is a downside, and at this point, WikiFX cannot confirm that Esperio allows reduction! Beware!

??Now let's search “Esperio” on WikiFX APP to find out more about this broker. WikiFX is an authoritative global inquiry platform providing basic information inquiry and regulatory license inquiry. WikiFX can evaluate the safety and reliability of more than 36,000 global forex brokers. WikiFX gives you a huge advantage while seeking the best forex brokers.

??As you can see, based on information given on WikiFX, Esperiocurrently has no valid regulatory license and the score is rather negative - only 1.16/10! WikiFX gives brokers a score from 0 to 10. The higher the score is, the more reliable the broker is.

??Investors are advised to search relevant information on WikiFX APP about the broker you are inclined to trade with before finally deciding whether to make investment or not. Compared with official financial regulators which might lag behind, WikiFX is better at monitoring risks related to certain brokers - the WikiFX compliance and audit team gives a quantitative assessment of the level of broker regulatory through regulatory grading standards, regulatory actual values, regulatory utility models, and regulatory abnormality prediction models. If investors use WikiFX APP before investing in any broker, you will be more likely to avoid unnecessary trouble and thus be prevented from losing money! The importance of being cautious and prudent can never be stressed enough.

??In a nutshell, it's not wise to invest in Esperio. WikiFX reminds you that forex scam is everywhere, you'd better check the broker's information and user reviews on WikiFX before investing.

??You can also expose forex scams on WikiFX. WikiFX will do everything in its power to help you and expose scams, warn others not to be scammed. In addition, scam victims are advised to seek help directly from the local police or a lawyer.
