Another website attacked to abuse old versions of Internet Explorer.
November 11, 2010
It seems that another high profile website has been attacked to take advantage of a zero-day bug in version 6 and 7 of Internet Explorer; this time it’s Amnesty International Hong Kong site. At present, Internet Explorer 8 is not affected.
What is a zero-Day bug?
A zero-day bug is an error in the way a piece of software, that has not been fixed by the software company, that allows someone to gain access to your computer.
