IE flaw gives hackers access to user files, MS says.
Microsoft warned on Wednesday that a flaw in its Internet Explorer browser gives attackers access to files stored on a PC under certain conditions.
"Our investigation so far has shown that if a user is using a version of Internet Explorer that is not running in Protected Mode an attacker may be able to access files with an already known filename and location," Microsoft said in a security advisory.
The vulnerability requires that an attacker knows the name of the file they want to access, it said.
