An IE Vulnerability Report Gone Wrong

Yet another twist in the way security vulnerabilities are being reported: An alleged security "researcher" has informed the media that hes discovered "a blatant access validation crash" that can result in malicious code, delivered from a Web site, running on the victim system "without them even knowing about it." While providing no details whatsoever to the public, the "researcher" suggests people consider using a different browser until Microsoft releases a patch. Meanwhile, Microsoft has been informed of the details by the "researcher" and is investigating. - Microsoft Certified Professional Magazine Online
