Microsoft is investigating a report of seven new security holes in Internet Explorer. The holes were discovered by a Chinese researcher.
Two holes are critical and could allow an attacker to run a program that would delete files, crash the machine or take control of it from a remote location, said Russ Cooper of TruSecure Corp. who edits the NTBugTraq e-mail list.Okay, then. Have I mentioned how much I love my OS X ;-)
Cooper said, however, he was not yet concerned about the security holes because of the inactivity. "There just aren't any new attacks being made" on Internet Explorer, he said.
