Microsoft has published an advisory for all supported versions of IE. The advisory warns of a problem with a CSS-related function in IE6 through IE8. Malicious websites could take advantage of the vulnerability to run code of their choice on the client computer. This could be the vulnerability announced by VUPEN. Microsoft is not aware of any exploits in the wild; however, caution is needed when visiting unfamiliar sites. Microsoft recommends the use of antivirus and antispyware applications. At this time, little other information is available for the general public as Microsoft continues to investigate further.
