+ - Another security flaw in old IE (6 - 8) under XP->

Submitted by Billly Gates
Billly Gates (198444) writes "We have been hearing about java all week.The week before that a new vulnerability appeared in old IE 6 — 8 with operating systems that do not support protected mode (XP). Now another exploit is out which comes from how an older object gets deleted from memory. An emergency patch will come out tomorrow to fix it. Users of IE 8 in Windows 7 are not affected. With all the news of old software being used for exploits it is time to move on and upgrade older systems in the office."
