For any sites that you add to the trusted sites list features such as ActiveX and active scripting or automatically enabled.

Microsoft Cautions Users on Critical vulnerability in Internet Explorer

images15

Web based attacks are one of the most common forms of attack initiated by the criminals. Attackers exploit vulnerabilities on websites, web browsers and other web applications. Recently, Microsoft has alerted users on a critical vulnerability in Internet Explorer that could allow an attacker to execute malicious scripts. Attackers may exploit the vulnerability and compromise information security. The vulnerability is associated with the handling of Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) formatted requests by MIME HTML (MHTML). The vulnerability may in some instances cause an Internet user to execute a malicious script on visiting a malicious web page. MIME is a data format, which condenses binary structures as a text only format. MHTML allows applications to deliver MIME structures. The format requests from MIME may be manipulated by an attacker to inject malicious code in the victim’s computer. The vulnerability is similar to cross-site scripting attacks. However, in the malicious script may be executed in the client side context.

An attacker may place an HTML link with malicious code on a website and tempt users to click on the link. When users accessing the site through Internet Explorer click on the link, the malicious code gets executed in their system. Usually, software developers find vulnerabilities through ethical hacking. In this case, Microsoft found that a proof-of-concept code for exploiting the vulnerability is available in the wild.

Once executed, the malicious script may spoof the content, reveal information and perform arbitrary actions on the website on behalf of the targeted user without latter’s input. The extracted information may be misused by the attackers. The vulnerability affects all versions of Windows. Information security professionals at Microsoft are working with other partners to provide protection from the vulnerability. Meanwhile, Microsoft has provided a fixit solution. The fix it wizard has two options. The enable option locks down MHTML and the disable option unlocks the MHTML.

Disabling ActiveX controls and Active scripting in Internet Explorer may also provide some protection to users. Microsoft may consider issuing a patch for the zero day vulnerability during one of its upcoming security updates.

Though, Zip file format is a useful compression method, at the same time it is vulnerable to corruption, due to which you might come across an error message while trying to open the Zip file. Sometimes, you may receive an error message after downloading the Zip file with Internet Explorer. This happens if the HTTP compression is enabled for the .zip file The reason behind such behavior may be corruption of the Zip file, as a result of which the data stored in the Zip file may no more remain accessible to you. In order to access your data, you need to have a copy of a data backup file. But, in case you have not backed up your data, then the only way by which your data can be retrieved is by using a good-quality zip repair application.

Consider a scenario Sometimes, when you download a Zip file using Internet Explorer 6 and try to open the Zip file, the following error message appears:

The compressed (zipped) folder is invalid or corrupted.

After this error message, you will not be able to access the Zip file. Consequently, all the data that was stored in the Zip file becomes inaccessible. Furthermore, you will not be able to open the Zip file, no matter how many times you try to do so.

Cause:
The above mentioned error message occurs if the HTTP compression is enabled or activated for Zip files on the web server, from where the Zip file is downloaded. And if the HTTP compression is enabled on the web server, the Zip file gets encoded and then sent to Internet Explorer. When Internet Explorer receives the HTTP-compressed Zip file, then it is directly transferred to the program that is configured to un-zip the zip file without decoding the HTTP compression.

Resolution:
To resolve the issue, you need to repair zip file using a third-party application, known as zip repair software.
