Patch 'em if you got 'em (and even if you don't): Critical Zero-day IE bug being exploited right now

Just passing this along as the buzz about it is getting a bit overwhelming — which means you should take this as a critical alert.

According to AlienVault Labs (see: New Internet Explorer zero day being exploited in the wild for full report):

The new vulnerability appears to affect Internet Explorer 7 and 8 and seems to be exploitable at least on Windows XP.

However, other sites are reporting that even Windows Vista and Windows 7, with IE 7, 8, and 9 can’t protect you from this, and are prescribing folks to STOP using Internet Explorer until a fix is available.
