Microsoft warns for IE6/7 exploit

Posted on Tuesday, November 24 2009 @ 21:06:00 CET by


CNET reports Microsoft warned dangerous exploit code for Internet Explorer is out in the wild, this exploit can potentially take control of PCs of users who visit a website hosting the code. Only Internet Explorer 6 and 7 are affected, users of IE8 do not need to worry.
"The exploit targets a vulnerability in the way Internet Explorer uses Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) information. CSS is used in many Web pages to define the presentation of the sites' content," Symantec wrote in a blog post this weekend.

"The exploit currently exhibits signs of poor reliability, but we expect that a fully functional, reliable exploit will be available in the near future," Symantec said. Symantec urges IE users to keep their antivirus software up-to-date, disable JavaScript, and visit only trusted Web sites, until Microsoft issues a patch for the hole.
