Critical flaw affects all versions of IE

Microsoft speeds up Internet Explorer crash fix

All versions of Internet Explorer contain errors that can be exploited maliciously, Microsoft confirmed. The company asks users to browse in safe mode since any of the editions of browser – Internet Explorer 5.01, IE6, IE7 and IE8 Beta 2 (which still does not circulate freely on traditional channels) – is vulnerable.

Microsoft does not yet have any patch security available to correct these flaws and, according to information provided by the company to ComputerWorld, the case deserves special attention from users using IE on Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 or Server 2008.

However, the manufacturer points out that it is working on fixing vulnerabilities through the MAPP – Microsoft Active Protections Program – and MSRA – Microsoft Security Risk Assessment programs.
