IE 7 vulnerability discovered


According to security firm Secunia, the just-released Internet Explorer 7 contains a “Redirection Information Disclosure” vulnerability,
which allows one site to fetch data from another site through the
browser, which opens it up to all kinds of cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks. Interestingly, the same vulnerability has been known and unpatched in IE6
since April. It’s one thing not to patch an old browser, but seems
quite another to release a brand new browser with the same
vulnerability that you’ve been aware of for six months
