On Friday, Novell issued a Microsoft workaround for a zero day exploit in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer to its Novell ZENworks Patch Management users. The patch fixes an IE vulnerability to remote code execution via an error in the Microsoft Windows implementation of the Vector Markup Language.
Novell acted fast to issue this temporary workaround and to inform customers of the vulnerability, because the code to exploit the IE flaw was publicly posted and attacks were becoming widespread. This quick response and having an automated patch management process in place helps customers to secure and protect their networks and devices from this and other potentially dangerous vulnerabilities.
