Internet Explorer security flaw, Microsoft® fix pending


Security risk found within Internet Explorer

The Microsoft® Corporation recently sent notice that a vulnerability has been detected in its Internet Explorer browser that could allow a hacker to target a computer and execute a malicious code. An additional notice published Sept. 18, 2012, suggests a fix is anticipated within a week.

Meanwhile, as Microsoft® developers work to create an automated solution, the GJPS Office of Technology is suggesting that staff and students temporarily switch to another Internet browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome until notified that Microsoft's security fix has been released and applied to all Gahanna-Jefferson computers.

Exception: eSchool is designed to only work with Internet Explorer is not one of the websites identified as a possible risk that would trigger the malicious code.
