Microsoft is warning users of its Internet Explorer browser to use caution on the web, after the disclosure of an unpatched bug that could allow attackers to seize control of a PC running the browser software.

The bug, disclosed Wednesday, relates to the way that IE processes information using the createTextRange() method. By presenting the browser with specially crafted code, attackers could corrupt the system's memory and trick it into running unauthorised software. Computerworld > Microsoft warns of nasty IE bug
