Warning - Microsoft Opened A Security Hole In Internet Explorer 11 ReviewPosted on 2014-02-04 10:31:55 by Thomas De Maesschalck
When they released Internet Explorer 11, I installed it and immediately noticed that it was more stable than Internet Explorer 10. In fact, they seemed to have reduced GDI leaks, although it still seems to be there. Still, I would have irrevocably recommended that everyone using Internet Explorer upgrade to IE11. Internet Explorer 11 is definitely the best IE so far. However, I have to point out that Microsoft actually introduced a security hole in Internet Explorer 11. This is something you can close, and we will show you how to do that in a moment, but it is absurd for Microsoft to actually open it in the first place. In this update, we added more details on how Enhanced Protected Mode works, and Enhanced Protected Mode’s compatibility issues with Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash Player. We also added a new section on "fixing" Enhanced Protected Mode compatibility issues with Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash Player.
