Urgent Internet Explorer Patch
by Ruben December 2004
A critical flaw in Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer Web browser could allow a hacker to take control of a computer, the world's largest software maker said on Wednesday.
Microsoft, which issued the security bulletin outside of its regular monthly security update cycle, said that the software flaw can be fixed by downloading a software patch at its Web site http://www.microsoft.com/security. Users that have installed Service Pack 2 for Windows XP are not vulnerable.
