Update 7/15/2009 – the link to “Disable” below will now take you to a page with a link to the security update for this issue. Not long ago an exploitable flaw with ActiveX control for streaming video was discovered and is being exploited. The flaw itself has not been patched and there are only work-arounds that involve disabling the controls. For this reason we are advising the following until a patch is available:
1. Use an alternative browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
2. Disable the vulnerable Active X controls.
3. Be extremely cautious about what links are clicked/web pages are visited. (Only recommend to very experienced users)
If you have questions about this vulnerability feel free to contact us.
