 --Unpatched IE Flaw is Being Actively Exploited
(March 12 & 14, 2011)
An unpatched flaw in Internet Explorer (IE) is being exploited in
"limited, targeted attacks," according to Microsoft.  The vulnerability
in the mshtml.dll software library used by IE was disclosed two months
ago, but Microsoft has not yet released a patch for the issue, although
a Fixit tool is available.  The attacks involve tricking users into
visiting a specially-crafted web page that launches a drive-by attack
on the browser.  Google says the attacks appear to be politically
motivated.
