New bug for all versions of IE


by David Allen

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is suffering from a security hole, but unlike other attacks this bug actually affects IE5, IE6, IE7 and even the beta IE8.

As of yet this breach has yet to be patched for systems using Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003, and Server 2008.

Currently the suggestions are to increase the internet security zone to high and by using the access control list, disable Ole32db.dll, these actions are said to limit the damage that can be done, although some experts believe that this is not so.

The damage that this bug can do involves the loading of malicious software on computers that are weakened by the bug.

Yet Microsoft cannot say when a fix will be ready and the in any case the next patch Tuesday is not planned until the 13th January 2009.
