    No patch yet? FIX it!

    Hey guys,

    Read an article about some code in IE being exploited and no patch.

    Here is one of these "Fix it " things.

    Thanks for the QuickFix links Cider,

    This is strange as MS say:

    Our investigation has shown that there are no by-design uses for this ActiveX Control in Internet Explorer which includes all of the Class Identifiers within the msvidctl.dll that hosts this ActiveX Control.

    So why is it there then?

    I think that it is rather scary that malware authors could actually find and create a use for something that MS don't even know what to do with

    I also noticed that Windows 2000 doesn't have a problem with it so I am guessing that it isn't used by IE6
