Tuesday, 24 April 2018 12:00

A new APT attack using 0-day IE vulnerability has been detected and dubbed "Double Kill" by Chinese company Qihoo 360. The latest version of Internet Explorer and applications that use the IE kernel are affected. It's being spread in Microsoft Office documents that include a malicious Web page. Qihoo 360 has reported this to Microsoft, but there is no news from Microsoft at the time of this entry. Users are advised not to open office documents from untrusted sources. Another mitigation is to stop using Internet Explorer and adopted Edge browser instead.
