New publicly disclosed vulnerability in IE
The fact that it is publicly disclosed means that the bad guys *will* try to use it:
I know... telling people to only go to trusted sites is a tad unrealistic .. :o(
I note the blog mentions that the latest Beta 2 Preview for IE7 (5335.5) is not affected by the vulnerability, and even provides a link, but please don't download and install the beta simply to avoid this vulnerability ... the beta is targeted at developers and IT pros and it has its problems (for example, History is broken, Trend online AV scan doesn't work, some McAfee features don't work, and a lot of sites have not been recoded to work with IE7). I can't recommend that the 'man in the street' download and install IE7 Beta 2 Preview to avoid this vulnerability. Turn off active scripting instead.
