    Thumbs up Microsoft issues fix for IE flaw that could allow PC hijack [IE6, IE7, IE8]

    Hi Loungers,
    Microsoft issued a fix today for a zero-day vulnerability in older versions of Internet Explorer that could allow attackers to gain control of Windows-based computers to host malicious Web sites.

    The company confirmed Saturday that it was investigating a remote code execution vulnerability in IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8 that could allow an attacker to use the corrupted PC to host a Web site designed to exploit the vulnerability with other users. Versions of the browser after IE 8 are unaffected, Microsoft said.

    Ok, I thought I was going nuts at first. This is evidently for IE versions 6, 7 and 8 only. Those with IE 9 or IE 10 will get a message that this update does not apply to their systems.

    Medico, I'll pass on the advice my physician gave me. As long as you're worried about losing your marbles, you've still got them.
