Internet Explorer 9 protects against 99 percent of socially engineered malware

The Internet Explorer 9 beta protects against 99 percent of “socially engineered malware,” according to independent researcher NSS Labs.

What is socially engineered malware?

Cybercriminals use socially engineered malware to gain access to your computer. According to NSS Labs, socially engineered malware describes any link that leads to malicious websites or downloads that could harm your computer.

Research shows that these links appear on popular websites and services such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn as cybercriminals are increasingly taking advantage of people’s trust in these sites.
