Earlier this week Microsoft announced yet another IE (Internet Explorer) bug. This one, Microsoft Security Advisory 977981, is one of the really bad ones that can allow attackers to take your Windows PC over. Yuck!
Microsoft is working on a fix, but there still isn’t one, and worse still, there are already several attacks out there that can exploit this IE security hole.
This particular problem hits IE 6 and 7. If you have Internet Explorer 8, which is what comes on Windows 7, you’re safe from this one.
