Slashdot | Yahoo and Hotmail Filter Flaw
GreyMagic Software, an Israeli computer security firm, has discovered a serious security flaw in Yahoo and Microsoft’s email services which allows hackers to run malicious programs on users’ computers. According to the website, all attempts to contact Yahoo unfortunately failed.
Here’s the interesting part: the exploit works only in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and up. Which means IE 5.5 and 6.0 are also vulnerable. Does another security flaw in Internet Explorer surprise anyone? ;)
