New IE Flaw Affects Windows XP Sp2
eEye Digital Security has warned that a flaw with Internet Explorer could enable a remote attack on computers running Windows XP SP2. This is the intital reporting stage, so they have released no info to the public, they do not release info until the vendor issues an advisory or releases a patch.
The flaw, which also affects systems running Windows XP, is found in the default installations of Microsoft’s IE, according to an advisory released by the security company on Thursday.
“The flaw is not wormable but allows for the remote execution (of code) with some level of end-user intervention,” said Mike Puterbaugh, eEye’s senior director of product marketing.
No one should be at risk, YET, unless someone has also discovered the vulnerability and released a virus or some other kind of exploit. Read more here.
