Microsoft has released a temporary solution to prevent exploitation of a new zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer (IE).

On Wednesday, the tech giant provided the “Fix it,” nearly a week after news surfaced about limited attacks leveraging the vulnerability.

Last Thursday, researchers at FireEye revealed that a U.S. veterans website was compromised to serve the zero-day exploit, and that attackers likely launched the campaign to steal intel from military service members. In the attack campaign, dubbed “Operation SnowMan,” the booby trapped site was ultimately used as a means of infecting visitors with a backdoor used for cyber espionage purposes.

In a Wednesday security advisory, Microsoft said that it was aware of “limited, targeted attacks” that attempted to exploit the vulnerability (CVE-2014-0322), which impacts IE 9 and 10, but not IE 11 users.

The company also provided further details on the security issue.
