Ach ja, je raakt eraan gewend: er zit weer eens een beveiligings hol in Internet Explorer. News.com brengt ons op de hoogte:
The security hole is in the company's popular Web browser on Windows 95/98 and allows the execution of arbitrary programs on computers when users visit a Web page or receive Outlook email. It does so by creating, overwriting, and putting content in local files.
The problem may take "full control over the user's computer," according to Georgi Guninski, a Bulgarian programmer who discovered the problem over the weekend. Guninski has reported a number of bugs from various browser makers in the past.
The security hole is related to an ActiveX control that ships with IE5. That control could potentially pose a security risk to customers if it is used improperly by a malicious hacker, Microsoft confirmed.
