    Aurora exploit

    Rookie

      Has anyone seen this in the news? Seems an exploit targeting all versions of IE via an unpatched vulnerability. Looks like compromised webpages, if visited, can infect the computer with a tojan-downloader.

       

      Just wondering what steps LANDesk is taking to mitigate this risk with LDAV, if any, at least until MS comes out with a patch? Will LDAV be able to detect the trojan downloader and when can we expect a definition?
