Three extremely critical holes have been found in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6.0 running on SP2 by security firm Secunia.
The vulnerabilities could be exploited by hackers to compromise a user's system, conduct cross-site/zone scripting and bypass a security feature in Microsoft Windows XP SP2, warns Secunia.
The company suggests people to use another browser than Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Other work-arounds are to disable the "Drag and drop or copy and paste files" option and to set the security level of Internet Explorer to high for the Internet Zone.
