    Default Microsoft releases Fix It to fix Vulnerability in Internet Explorer

    There are only reports of a limited number of targeted attacks specifically directed at Internet Explorer 8 and 9, although the issue could potentially affect all supported versions. This issue could allow remote code execution if an affected system browses to a website containing malicious content directed towards the specific browser type.

    Microsoft suggest you do the following:

    1. Apply the Microsoft Fix it solution, "CVE-2013-3893 MSHTML Shim Workaround," that prevents exploitation of this issue. Get the Fix It's at KB2887505.
    2. Set Internet and local intranet security zone settings to "High" to block ActiveX Controls and Active Scripting in these zones
    3. Configure Internet Explorer to prompt before running Active Scripting or to disable Active Scripting in the Internet and local intranet security zones.

    Is the suggestion to do all 3 or just one or the other?

    Applying the Fix It should take care of everything.
