Microsoft haunted by old IE security flaw

Browser vulnerability--patched six years ago--resurfaces in newer releases. It could let hackers change content on Web sites.

A security flaw that had been fixed in older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer has reappeared in the latest version of the browser software.

Security company Secunia issued a bulletin warning of the flaw in versions 5.01, 5.5 and 6.0 of Internet Explorer (IE). The problem had been fixed six years ago, when it appeared in versions 3.0 and 4.0 of the IE browser.
