A fost descoperită o vulnerabilitate critică în Internet Explorer.

Description:
A vulnerability has been discovered in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a use-after-free error when composed HTML elements are bound to the same data source. This can be exploited to dereference freed memory via a specially crafted HTML document.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

NOTE: Reportedly, the vulnerability is currently being actively exploited.

The vulnerability is confirmed in Internet Explorer 7 on a fully patched Windows XP SP3 and in Internet Explorer 6 on a fully patched Windows XP SP2, and reported in Internet Explorer 5.01 SP4. Other versions may also be affected.

Solution:
Do not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links.

Personal însă aş recomanda (cel puţin până apar mai multe clarificări) foosirea altui browser.
