Microsoft Confirms ‘Highly Critical’ IE Hole

March 24, 2006 by  

Another day another security hole discovery in Internet Explorer. But this one is rated ‘Highy Critical’ which begs some attention.

From the article:

The vulnerability was confirmed on a fully patched system with IE 6.0 and Microsoft Windows XP SP2. It has also been confirmed in IE 7 Beta 2 Preview, Secunia said.

The MSRC (Microsoft Security Response Center) said in a blog entry that users of the new refresh of the IE7 Beta 2 Preview announced at Mix ’06 are not affected.

All you have to do to prevent a possible attack is turn off Active Scripting.
