Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 is a vulnerability in Windows that allows spiteful persons to gain access to the infected computer. This threatening exploit is part of several high profile threat attacks. Malware researchers have observed the Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 used in attacks involving various Trojans and, most importantly, in several high profile rootkits. You should make sure that your machine is not vulnerable to attacks exploiting the Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 vulnerability. To do this, ensure that your computer's operating system and software are all fully up-to-date. Vulnerabilities like Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 are often patched by software developers and Microsoft to protect computer users. However, crooks may rely on the fact that many computer users may neglect to update their software and operating system properly. If you are noticing any symptom indicating that your computer may have been attacked by threats exploiting Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096, malware researchers strongly recommend the use of a security program that is fully up-to-date to disinfect your computer.
How Vulnerabilities Like Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 are Used?
It is important to understand that Windows, like most other high profile operating systems, is extremely complex and that it is often the case that there are overlooked conflicts and interactions that may be exploited in order to cause harm to the infected computer. Although these vulnerabilities are often discovered in time by PC security researchers, by Microsoft or legitimate software developers, it may also occur that they are uncovered by evil-minded people. When this happens, they may create threats that take advantage of these vulnerabilities or integrate the exploit into already existing threats. Exploits like Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 usually allow third parties to gain access to a computer, bypassing its normal security measures in order to execute harmful code on the infected PC.
Protecting Yourself from Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096
The best way to protect yourself from threats exploiting Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 is by making sure that the software you use and your operating system are all completely up-to-date. If you observe problems already present, even after updating, then it is important to perform a deep scan of your machine with an efficient security program. Since Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096 is a known vulnerability, most reliable security programs are capable of detecting threats designed to exploit Exploit:Win32/CVE-2011-0096.
