Secunia claims second IE 7 flaw – Network World

 I understand vendor-speak. When a vendor says “there is an issue” it means “you caught us” It’s hard to know what it is that will make this issue after issue after issue end.

Secunia claims second IE 7 flaw

By Robert McMillan, IDG News Service, 10/25/06

Just one week after claiming that users of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 browser could be at risk to an online attack, Danish security vendor Secunia is reporting a new bug in the browser.

The bug allows hackers to place a fake Web address in one of the browser’s pop-up windows, and could be used to trick a victim into inadvertently downloading something from what appeared to be a trusted Web site. Secunia has described the flaw in an advisory, which can be found here.

Based on its initial investigation, Microsoft believes that there is “an issue,” a spokesman with the company’s public relations agency said in an e-mail.
