Internet Explorer hit by another critical vulnerability

Posted on Tuesday, January 26 2010 @ 16:05:37 CET by

Security research company Core Technologies found another critical flaw in Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The company identified a string of minor vulnerabilities in the browser, alone these bugs aren't serious enough to compromise your PC, but if a hacker exploits all four or five minor vulnerabilities at once he could remotely access all your data.
A security research firm Core Technologies said it has discovered another set of vulnerabilities in Internet Exploder that means that hackers can link together and exploit, to remotely access all of the data on a personal computer. Jorge Luis Alvarez Medina, a security consultant with Boston-based Core said that there were three or four ways to conduct this type of attack using a string of four or five minor vulnerabilities in IE.

Although none of the vulnerabilities are serious enough to compromise a machine, a hacker could take control of a PC by exploiting all of them at once, he said. The combination would overwhelm the browser, giving a hacker access to all data on the PC after a user clicks on a malicious link, he said.
