Posted December 15, 2005 by admin in Internet

Windows users are being warned about a bug that lets attackers take over a PC via the Internet Explorer browser. The bug makes it possible for webpages?to compromise a PC without a user spotting the attack, Microsoft warned.

Code to exploit the bug was circulating online which led Microsoft to label the bug "critical" and said users should apply a patch immediately.

At the same time a similar bug was found to be affecting earlier versions of the rival Firefox web browser.
