A security firm has found two serious flaws in Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Outlook. The security flaws could allow an attacker to take over a system with minimal user interaction, according to the company.
A spokeswoman for Microsoft confirmed that the company has been notified about the flaws.

"At this time, Microsoft is not aware of any malicious attacks attempting to exploit the reported vulnerabilities, and there is no customer impact based on this issue," she said.
The spokeswoman said that Microsoft will issue a fix through a service pack, one of the company's monthly patches or an out-of-cycle security update, depending on the severity of the flaws.
