Microsoft has yet to patch its latest critical Internet Explorer zero-day security flaw, but an advisory about the bug now offers two temporary solutions.
Updated on Monday, Microsoft Security Advisory 2963983 offers new information about the new zero-day vulnerability that affects all versions of Internet Explorer. The flaw could allow remote code execution and has already been used in “limited, targeted attacks,” Microsoft revealed, though those attacks have so far affected only IE versions 9, 10, and 11.
The slow-motion breakup of Queensryche is finally complete, with both sides issuing a new statement hailing an “amicable settlement.”
Queensryche memorably split into two after the surprising ouster of longtime frontman Geoff Tate in 2012. A pair of albums — both credited to Queensryche — appeared last year, along with competing lawsuits. However, founding guitarist Michael Wilton indicated last week that the two warring factions were about to call a truce.
Long-time members Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Wilton have been granted rights to the Queensryche name. Meanwhile, Tate is going forward as ‘the Voice of Queensryche.’ He has been granted exclusive full-album performance rights to Queensryche’s ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ projects, similar to the agreement between Pink Floyd and Roger Waters with ‘The Wall.’
Jackson, Rockenfield and Wilton, along with recent members Todd La Torre and Parker Lundgren, “will now be the sole entity recording and touring as Queensryche, performing selections from their entire musical catalog that spans over 30 years of material,” according to the jointly issued release. Wilton has confirmed that Queensryche is already at work on a follow up to 2013′s La Torre-fronted eponymous project.
“Both sides wish each other well and are excited about what the future holds,” the release concludes. “We want to thank the fans for standing beside us through this ordeal and look forward to sharing our music with you for years to come.”
Tate separately announced one final show as Queensryche starring Geoff Tate, to be held August 9 at the Downtown Amphitheater in Morgan Hill, California.
After plain old H2O, tea is the most popular drink on the planet. And some researchers say it’s even healthier. “Tea packs more of a punch than water,” says Carrie Ruxton, PhD, a dietitian and tea expert in the United Kingdom. “In addition to providing hydration, it’s rich in health-promoting substances.” The science is staggering: Studies suggest that one cup of tea may contain up to five times more antioxidants than any fruit or . These disease-fighting compounds may help prevent certain cancers, keep your heart healthy, burn fat and ward off weight gain, sharpen your mind, and help your body beat the effects of aging and stress. The facts are in: It’s teatime!
