Another critical IE vulnerability



Say it ain’t so…. yet another security vulnerability was discovered in Internet Explorer. Users are advised to use alternative browsers (firefox, opera, netscape.)

Same story, three hundreth verse… The French Security Response Team has an advisory. I didn’t see other advisories at first glance, but apparently Microsoft is “Aggressively investigating” the issue.
