    eEye spots another gaping hole in Outlook and Explorer



    Microsoft says it is investigating a new high-risk security flaw affecting Outlook and Internet Explorer, adding to the growing number of serious bugs that have been reported to the vendor but remain unfixed. eEye Digital Security disclosed the new bug, a buffer-overflow flaw potentially allowing attackers to execute malicious code on a system, last week. The bug affects default installations of Outlook, Outlook Express and Internet Explorer on Windows 2000 and Windows XP with Service Pack 1 installed, although eEye said additional versions of Windows may also be affected.

      Don't get too paranoid Boyce :eek: You have to remember that the overwhelming vast majority of people never experience nefarious people gaining control over their machines by exploiting a buffer overflow. A vunerabilty may exist but considering the amount of people using Outlook, well as they say you're safer in a crowd :biggrin
