Hackers target yet ANOTHER Internet Explorer hole

Same story (it seems), well it has the same heading, and the heading has been highlighted for the last couple of months now already. In any case, Microsoft said they are investigating another hole that cyber attackers are taking advantage of in IE 6 and IE 7. Again…

"At this time, we are aware of targeted attacks attempting to use this vulnerability," Microsoft said in an advisory posted along with a routine release of patches for Windows and Office software.

"We will continue to monitor the threat environment and update this advisory if this situation changes."

This flaw does the same as most previous reported flaws, which is to remotely seize control of computers. Strangely though, IE 5 and IE 8 are not affected. Time will tell how many unsafe holes there still are in IE 6 and IE 7, and in all honesty, people should really start considering getting a updated version of IE, or Microsoft should start fixing holes!

Microsoft on Tuesday warned that hackers are targeting yet another weakness in Internet Explorer 6 and 7
