Custom Administrative Template for Setting the Kill Bit on ActiveX Controls

Wed, 01 Nov 2006 15:30:04 GMT

With as many IE related ActiveX control vulnerabilities we’re seeing, you would be well served to use an administrative template (.ADM file) to push out kill bits via group policy and subsequently roll them back after associated patches are released and deployed. Setting a kill bit is just making a registry tweak which you can pretty easily accomplish via group policy using a custom administrative template. Then just roll it back when the actual vulnerability is patched.

I’ve created just such an Administrative Template and you are welcome to use it. ---> ADM File For Setting The Kill Bit
