Microsoft has buzzed up internet explorer users of security flaws in the software that can be illegally used by a hacker to breach ones system and possess the same access rights as the local user. Guessing the result? A possible system crash! :(

The problem was found in a program that serves the purpose of online video playing ActiveX Controls of the browser. The flaw, if successfully exploited by a cracker in particular, it can be used to gain the local user rights to access the computer which may have disastrous results.

Microsoft has advised its users to disable the ActiveX Controls till it launched the patched version of the software that the are working on with associates.
Why don't they advice their users to use Firefox? :P
The people at Microsoft are working to fix this problem and also developing a Windows security update to solve the problem.
