A few websites have been posting the code for the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. Unfortunately, this means that hackers can find vulnerabilities in the code, which they have done. The most recent secuirty hole allows for hackers to remotely hijack a computer, and can be triggered by a rigged multimedia webpage. The fault is mainly due to ActiveX and active scripting problems. Until Microsoft has a patch for this critical flaw, they advise users of Internet Explorer 5.01 and 6 to disable ActiveX controls and active scripting. Running Internet Explorer in Windows Server 2003 with Enhanced Security Configuration does not allow the security hole to be exploited.
