So if you disable flash, if you disable active scripting (to prevent flash from launching), if you browse as a user account (default), or if you disable flash's vector graphics the vulnerability is gone but...
"All Windows users should avoid using Internet Explorer until a patch is made available." ?????
"We recommend switching to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or WhiteHat Aviator"
How much did you get paid to tell people IE sucks and to use something different? This is a tech site, please stick to the facts or list this as an opinion piece.
This is a vulnerability in Flash's implementation for IE. (Pssstt IE10/11 is also not impacted in metro mode.)
It is apparently a browser that the CIA used as an enhanced interrogation method. Prisoners were forced to browse various websites using IE. Within a few days, the mental anguish will cause people to lose all will power.
Microsoft eventually stopped releasing updates for IE on windows XP after being unable to achieve their goal of being able to brig someone right to the line between life and death and hold them there indefinitely, but the browser was just too horrible to contain to such a level that would allow that.
