| Microsoft is warning users of its Internet Explorer browser to use caution
| on the web, after the disclosure of an unpatched bug that could allow
| attackers to seize control of a PC running the browser software.
| The bug, disclosed Wednesday, relates to the way that IE processes
| information using the createTextRange() method. By presenting the
| browser with specially crafted code, attackers could corrupt the
| system's memory and trick it into running unauthorised software.
| Microsoft's next scheduled set of security updates are due April
| 11, but Wistrand did not say whether the TextRange() bug would be
| patched then. Microsoft executives were not immediately available
| to comment for this story.
