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:
- 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.
- Set Internet and local intranet security zone settings to "High" to block ActiveX Controls and Active Scripting in these zones
- 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?
