The security researchers at the firm say that they have managed to beat Microsoft's "Fix It" solution, which was recently released as a temporary measure. The original vulnerability came to light several weeks ago and is able to infiltrate various versions of Internet Explorer.
Security researcher Eric Romang originally found four files while stumbling around a compromised server; an executable, a Flash Player movie and two HTML files called exploit.html and protect.html. Together, when a user visits the exploit.html page, it loads the Flash movie, which in turn loads the other HTML page. Afterwards, the executable is dropped on to the victim's computer, which allows cyberattackers to drop any file they wish on to the machine and take control via malware or bots.
