The following issue has just been discovered and, so far, it seems it was not exploited or had no known consequences. Nevertheless, as it's now public, you can expect it to be soon used. So update your software when the patch becomes available, and don't forget an anti-virus and an anti-malware (excellent ones are available for free).

Today we released Security Advisory 2488013 to address a public vulnerability that could affect customers using Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 if they visit a website hosting malicious code. Currently the impact of this vulnerability is limited and we are not aware of any affected customers or active attacks targeting customers.

(...)

We are working to develop a security update to address this attack against our customers. The issue does not currently meet the criteria for an out-of-band release. However, we are monitoring the threat landscape very closely and if the situation changes, we will post updates here on the MSRC blog.

As always, we encourage Internet users to follow the "Protect Your Computer" guidance of enabling a firewall, applying all software updates and installing anti-virus and anti-spyware software
