The recently reported dynamic link library (DLL) flaw that affects apps, from Office to IE, is now more easily fixed. A workaround has been out for a bit. Now Microsoft is making it easer to install the fix through a new 'Fix it,' which is supposed to be a one-click affair -- that is, once you first download and install the update.
The fix prevents rogue DLLs, or those that don't point to a specific path, from being hijacked and pointed to malware.
The flaw is blamed on poorly written apps. If so, Microsoft's software also has been subject to this flaw.
In any case, I'm grateful for a quick and easy solution to this problem.
