IE bug can risk unprotected computers

By : |December 23, 2010 0

LONDON, UK: Microsoft has issued a warning about an Internet Explorer bug that might hack into and take control of unprotected computers. Though Microsoft has already released a workaround solution for the bug, it is still working on the permanent solution, ANI reported quoting company sources.

Microsoft has recommended those concerned to use a protection system known as the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit.

The report said the bug revolves around the way that IE manages a computer’s memory when processing Cascading Style Sheets – a widely used technology that defines the look and feel of pages on a website. Criminals can exploit IE’s memory management to inject their own malicious code into the stream of instructions a computer processes as a browser is being used.
