IE Plagued by ‘Extremely Critical’ Flaws

Secunia recommends users drop IE and use an alternative browser. “Although hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on securing SP2, perfection is impossible,” the security firm said in a statement.
Millions of Internet Explorer 6 users are at risk from three “extremely critical” security holes that give hackers open access to PCs running the browser — even if Windows XP Service Pack Two has been installed.
The first issue centers on the browser’s drag-and-drop capability, which does not validate new files correctly.
This means that, potentially, a document downloaded from a Web page using drag and drop may contain malicious code.
