Microsoft Internet Explorer crash is exploitable

Anonymous Reader writes "On August 8th Microsoft released MS06-042 which was a cumulative update for Internet Explorer. Over the course of a few days after the release of this patch various IE users and businesses started to experience IE crashing problems when viewing certain websites. There is an exploitable condition so it is important that IT administrators understand the true threat of this problem that this is not simply a crashing bug as Microsoft has been incorrectly misrepresenting it."
