We have decided to return the InfoCon to green for the start of the weekend. We feel that everyone that is going to has reacted to the latest exploit for IE and wanted to start the weekend in normal mode.
We do want to remind everyone however that this is a serious problem. We have received information that at least a dozen sites exist out there that are working the exploits. The information is also circulating on IRC so might be a good idea to kill IRC until the patches are released and in place. (And no we are not going to tell anyone what the sites are. We cannot and will not release the information so please don't ask.)
Best advise we can give is to disable active scripting to make sure that your computer doesn't get smacked. And Snort Sig's are available as was indicated earlier.
So use due diligence this weekend and take care to surf safely. Have a great weekend everyone and stay safe.
