If you’re an Internet Explorer user you may have come across a recent warning of a vulnerability affecting almost every version of the web browser. The warning highlighted security issues that could give hackers complete control of a user’s web browser.

sales-i are pleased to announce that this security flaw in Internet Explorer does not affect your access to or usage of our software. You can continue to login and use your sales-i account as normal.

A Microsoft spokesperson has issued a statement saying “We are working closely with Fireeye to investigate this report of a vulnerability which was found to have been used in a very limited, targeted attack: the vulnerability is a ‘use-after-free’ memory corruption and the exploit observed seems to target IE9, IE10 and IE11.”

The security flaw doesn’t affect sales-i because it relies on two other components to successfully trigger code execution which sales-i does not provide.

If you have any concerns over using Internet Explorer for sales-i, we suggest switching to another web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox or Opera until Microsoft has issued a fix. Alternatively you can find out more information from our support team.

I'm the Marketing Manager here at sales-i and being in marketing I obviously love crayons and of course I have a toy Chewbacca on my desk (fully equipped with the 'Maaaaaarh' noise! I have worked in the technology industry for over 7 years and have a good grasp on what's happening in the industry. I also enjoy* the technical side of software development. *The term 'enjoy' relates to the very few occasions where the techy side actually goes to plan, otherwise replace with the term 'gets frustrated'.
