MS vulnerability affects internet explorer.

Lumension Security : 07 December, 2007  (Technical Article)
Microsoft to release December patches to overcome Internet Explorer shortcomings against web based malicious code execution.
Microsoft has released its Advance Notification for December 2007. Alan Bentley, Regional VP of Lumension EMEA (formerly PatchLink) comments:

"After a light Patch Tuesday in November, security administrators will have their hands full this month. The three critical patches all address remote code execution and should be rolled out as quickly as possible. The vulnerabilities are Web-based, and hackers can prey on unsuspecting end-users by dropping malicious code into videos and other media on legitimate Web sites. This is particularly troublesome because attackers can prey on users as the weakest IT security link by posting seemingly harmless videos on YouTube, MySpace, Facebook or similar sites. If a user watches one of these infected videos, malware will execute, compromise their machine and put the entire network at risk."

"These critical vulnerabilities could possibly be exploited directly through Web-based email. This will allow hackers to target individual users or user groups, making attacks much more difficult to identify."

"One of the critical vulnerabilities (bulletin 7) affects both Internet Explorer 6 and IE 7. This is concerning since it will affect the entire Internet Explorer user community. It is vital to deploy this patch as quickly as possible because it affects a larger number of users than is typical."
