Microsoft investigating new IE browser vulnerability

Quote:
Microsoft’s security response team is investigating reports of a potentially dangerous code execution vulnerability in its flagship Internet Explorer browser.
The company warned that an attacker could host a maliciously crafted web page and run arbitrary code if they could convince a user to visit the web page and then get them to press the F1 key in response to a pop up dialog box.

Ditto. But I really don't blame IE; if as many people uses FF as use IE, hackers would spend more effort trying to compromise FF.

Yep you are correct about that one.

Once one program gets so popular it will start getting hacked to death just like Microsoft and all of it's products... It is sad.
