Subject: Alert: Stop Using Internet Explorer: Malware Found

Attention Students:

You are receiving this message from the ASU Information Security Office – PLEASE READ IF YOU USE Internet Explorer

A previously unknown computer security problem is affecting all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE). Through this newly discovered security flaw, an unauthorized person can gain access to your computer and install malicious programs without your knowledge that permit that unauthorized person to use your computer for illegal purposes, including potentially gaining access to information on your computer. Recently, this has taken a turn for the worse and the number of locations hosting this malware was raised tremendously.

Please refrain from using Internet Explorer (IE) unless absolutely necessary until it is patched. Microsoft has announced plans to release a comprehensive patch today, Friday, Sept 21st (See References).

In the interim please do the following:

  • Until further notice (until this threat passes), the Information Security Office recommends the use of alternative browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or Safari.
  • If you must use IE, please only use known links.
  • Review and apply Microsoft’s released workarounds and patches as appropriate. (See References)

The Information Security Office will provide updates on this situation at As always, take caution when using the Internet, especially in these kinds of situations. To report an event or incident, contact the ASU Help Desk at 1-855-278-5080.

For events that do not require an immediate response, email infosec (at) or visit

Thanks for the laugh. Perhaps here is a better email option:

Some of you may or may not be aware, of the recent Internet Explorer security flaw, which researchers say could allow hackers to take remote control of an infected PC.

Use this link to download and install the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit v3.0

This free security tool, is designed to help prevent hackers from gaining access to your system. Feel free to forward this email to any Bulwark employees that are not on this email list.

Of course if you are already on this website in internet explorer than that link may not help you.

And if you need a Tempe Exterminator…

Perhaps they have found a way to combat coupon dependency.

3 of 5 Trending Topics on Google Plus Have Hashtags.

Pretty funny considering hashtags are a twitter thing. Perhaps google+ should just copy that as well, oh wait they already did about 4 months ago. Now just wondering when they will add a Red Google+ Bird.

Just goes to show that the Google+ crowd is the same twitter crowd. Are they just copying and pasting their tweets? I wonder who would get dinged for duplicate content in this scenario.

It’s really nice that Google will tell what you want to know.

Screenshot from within Google Boost today. Pretty funny. Just another small bug they are dealing with in the recent updates to local. Beyond the shock of pending ads and Google’s candid answer about Google Boost, local search is taking another leap forward. … I wish I could take credit for the recent jump, but alas I cannot. I can only take satisfaction in it.

And to quote an amazing programer:

“Its amazing that you can go online and search for an answer on anything, but its even more amazing that there are so many people that are still as dumb rocks out there.” -Yes Dude
