Vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer may allow remote code execution

 

According to the Microsoft Security Advisory (979352), some attacks have been identified at Internet Explorer 6 which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by accessing a pointer associated with a deleted object, as exploited in the wild in January 2010. Other versionsare also affected like Internet Explorer 6, 6 SP1, 7, and 8 on Windows 2000 SP4; Windows XP SP2 and SP3; Windows Server 2003 SP2; Windows Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2; Windows Server 2008 Gold, SP2, and R2; and Windows 7.

Small pactch for protecting the remote code execution exists at the following Microsoft link (this fix is not necessary if you are using Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) or on Windows Vista SP1 or later).

Good luck
