No patch yet? FIX it!
Read an article about some code in IE being exploited and no patch.
Here is one of these "Fix it " things.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

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

We can merge my thread and this I guess..
This is use of Directshow vulnerability
Secunia is having more information about it now :
Plus we can put this as an *HEADS UP* .. This is critical and is being actively exploited..
CISSP, CISM, CISA, SSCP
*Thank you GOD*
Greater the Difficulty, SWEETER the Victory.
Believe in yourself.
