Don’t end up in the hackers’ gunsights. Patch your computers against the latest Adobe and Microsoft security flaws – some of which are already being exploited.
Microsoft says it is all set to fix a bunch of security flaws on Patch Tuesday, including one involving TIFF files.
But there’s no date yet for a fix for an in-the-wild zero-day threat affecting Windows XP users.
Microsoft has a fix already prepped, for an attack that has seen malware load directly into computers’ memory, bypassing the hard drive.
Eight security bulletins are planned for Tuesday – but when will the fix for the actively-exploited TIFF zero-day vulnerability be released?
FireEye says it has uncovered evidence that the recently-announced Microsoft zero-day vulnerability is not just being used in targeted attacks, but also has been used in wider finanically-motivated malware campaigns.
A previously unknown TIFF remote code execution vulnerability is being exploited by hackers in targeted attacks.
Microsoft has released a temporary workaround to protect users.
