Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:04 am

Microsoft is investigating a flaw in Internet Explorer 6, according to a posting on the software maker’s Security Response Center blog. The ADODB.Connection ActiveX control in Internet Explorer 6.x may contain a vulnerability that can cause memory corruption, and therefore crash the browser.

It is possible this new threat, considered by Microsoft to be a low risk, could be used by criminal hackers for so-called “drive-by” downloads.
