British security software company Prevx has announced that it has released a fix for the Internet Explorer flaw which they suggest can be used until Microsoft releases an official patch.
The small utility allows users to disable the affected component of Internet Explorer and apparently keep you safe from that specific exploit.
"Just avoiding using IE will not protect user's computers as malicious code targets users through a number of other means also," said Prevx's head of research Jacques Erasmus.
"Because of the increasing underground market for bank details and other personal information criminals are now designing malicious software which is designed to disable or sneak past anti-virus and remain hidden on a user's computer.
"Prevx has addressed the weaknesses exploited by this approach, providing consumers with next-level protection."
