Those of us who actually know HOW to use the browser perhaps? And know how to restrict it's access and protect it?

Personally, while I appreiciate the warning, I'll continue to us IE9 since I've never had any issues with it (Firefox always gives me issues though, which is why I chucked it overboard, and Chrome I refuse to use)

Edit: Ok, it didn't includ the quote? O.o

One person who was infected that I knew of is a holder of an IT Degree, and he knows how to keep his system safe, he does network security for a living.

It was an exploit in IE9 that has been targeted so doesn't matter if you had set it to its highest security setting, it would have still got through.

So I will answer you the same tone you set in your first sentence.

Those of you who think they KNOW HOW to use the browser at its most restrictive, means diddly squat :P

Lol. I think I may know which exploit you're referring to within the IE9. It too bad M$ still can't code that is worth more than . However, all we can do is attempt to avoid it. I've only use IE9 for serveral things, but chances are is that it probably the add-on that has been targeted. And I'm pretty certain that several reason behind this virus is to increase business for PC Doctors (IT Tech repair). lol

This is a zero day exploit. Hopefully there will be a patch for it on the 15th.

I will give one piece of good advice to people adamant about continuing to use IE9.

Log into your router if you have one, and turn off UPNP, that is virus/trojan/malware heaven.

Unfortunately people that use PCs at work are usually pushed into using only one type of browser, and that is usually IE9. Because their Techy guys are idiots and can't work with more than 1 browser :P

Anyone with this issue can bypass it with LiberKey (allows you to install applications onto portable storage, like a Flash drive).

There's been a portable version of Firefox going around. You just need to remember that most of the time your company intranet websites will probably require IE:

Likewise you can install Chrome without any issues since it installs itself to your appdata directory instead of your program folders (the latter which requires admin rights to write to).

Hi ZikenDendou,just 2 points and they are in the ending of your reply,

1.As you do not use IE9 for several things and several means 2 you really don't need IE9, i would have thought,but then again i am no TECHIE..lol.

2.This part "but chances are is that it probably the add-on that has been targeted. And I'm pretty certain that several reason behind this virus is to increase business for PC Doctors (IT Tech repair). lol " is this speculation on your your behalf?..PLZ do not take offence!! no offence intended in my Questioning..lol

My question is, would this be vulnerable to the virus?
