Microsoft has managed to do it yet again. A new 0-day exploit has been found for IE 7, 8 & 9 running on any version of Windows released in the last 10 years. Computers can get compromised simply by visiting a malicious website, which gives the attacker the same privileges as the current user.

Now would be a good time for you to switch to a web browser that doesn’t give you anything short of cancer like Chrome or Firefox.

Check out The Verge link for more info as well as the Metasploit link for the demos.
