Microsoft Plans Patch For IE Hole
The company plans a patch for the 'highly critical' hole in the IE 7 beta.
Microsoft is responding to what one security firm terms a "highly critical" flaw in Internet Explorer.
The software giant said it is planning to release a pre-patch advisory with instructions on avoiding the security problem.
Attackers could exploit a flaw in the "createTextRange()" method used by IE to control radio buttons, according to Copenhagen, Denmark-based Secunia Research, which first reported the flaw.
The flaw was confirmed on a fully patched version of IE 6.0 and Microsoft XP SP2, as well as IE 7 Beta 2 Preview released in January, according to the security company.
