Windows 7: Microsoft promises fix for IE security flaw in next few days

20 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 x64 SP1

I only use IE9 for 'trusted' sites like this forum and news, other major sites etc. so I rely on their operators to be aware of such malware and to close the site down if a problem occurs. As mentioned, most anti-malware will catch this stuff anyway. I use Firefox to surf any other sites and always have a system image back-up (Macrium) to fall back on in the event of malware - never needed to though. I will be updating the OS when a proper solution is provided.

Thoughts on those Fix-its...

  • If a user enables the Fix-it does s/he have to disable it before applying the next round of patch Tuesday updates or will the IE update override the Fix-it? This is presuming there is an update for IE, and it is a harden version of the Fix-it.
  • Or is the Disable Fix-it only there if the Enable Fix-it causes problems with the users machine?
  • Some Fix-its do not have a Disable feature, why?

Thanks Shawn. I added both IE64 and 32 to EMET per the link.

It wasn't too hard to figure out.

If someone needs help with adding to EMET I have SNIPS as I did it.
Post questions at the EMET tutorial Brink linked to in Post #14 below.

If you have a problem with IE after adding to EMET it can be removed from EMET with one click of the mouse.
