Another Internet Explorer hole revealed


Websense has reported yet another Internet Explorer loophole which I can reveal is an absolute doozie.

The flaw, it seems is another of those `zero day' vulnerabilities which makes Internet Explorer wide open to abuse.

According to Websense, the flaw allows hacker code to be loaded and launched without reference to the Web user. Perhaps worse, there's no patch available for the wretched problem.

The only good news is that Websense says it is running a series of `honeypot' clients to scan for malicious Web sites that are using the vulnerability and then working with the relevant authorities to get the Web sites closed down...
