Microsoft has announced a newly discovered bug in Internet Explorer is being used by hackers to install the Poison Ivy Trojan onto computers. This malware is dangerous to have on your system as it can be used to steal information or let the hackers remotely control your PC.

Microsoft are currently working to provide a full patch that will automatically fix the bug, but in the meantime it is strongly advised that users protect themselves by downloading a temporary patch as the full solution may not be ready for some time.

The temporary patch is called the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit.

Once the software is downloaded, it will place a program file and full instructions on how to use it on your desktop. We also strongly recommend you update your antivirus software and run regular scans. You may also wish to switch web browsers from Internet Explorer to Chrome or Firefox until Microsoft have resolved this issue.
