    @ Thankful

    Thanks for the info :thumb:

    From one of siljaline links :thumb:

    How to protect = Simple :p

    Set Flash to Disable or Prompt.

    Disable or Prompt iframes.

    Even without the above settings, Poison Ivy etc won't Install/Run if you have for eg an AntiExe etc in place.

    Why don't writers of such articles inform people about such Easily preventative measures ? Which have available for Years, even as far back as 98SE days :thumb:

    From the PoisonIvy PDF "Helpfile"

    A good reason for not having ADS :D I've always chosen to have FAT32, so no ADS here :p

    I don't use IE, but I would be willing to bet it will never get past Appguard.

    As per Ron's post, we should see a fix likely on Windows Update within the next few days. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available.
