Two New IE Flaws Found


Security researchers have uncovered two more security flaws in Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser that could be used to install unwanted software when users visit a malicious site. Both researchers released "proof of concept" code that could serve as rough blueprints showing would be attackers how to exploit the flaws.

Matthew Murphy, a 19year old security consultant and student at Missouri State University, said he released his findings because he believed Microsoft wasn't taking his research seriously enough. He said he first notified Redmond about the flaw in October. Security Fix - Brian Krebs on Computer and Internet Security - (washingtonpost.com)
