Address bar security hole within IE

Address bar security hole within IE

Security vendor Secunia announced a new security hole within Internet Explorer, one that could help phishers find their marks. The flaw exists because of the way the browser loads Web pages and Macromedia Flash animation. Microsoft is studying the report and suggests disabling Active Script within Internet Explorer as a workaround. A new round of Microsoft Security Patches will be issued on Tuesday, April 11, 2006, with at least one security patch addressing cumulative fixes for Internet Explorer. To find out if your browser is vulnerable, Secunia has a test URL available. For more on this flaw, see Joris Evers' coverage on News.com.
