Heise Online is reporting that a new flaw in Internet Explorer 7 has been found. The flaw allows programs to be run silently when a page is printed from the Internet. The vulnerability is said to be based on a cross-zone scripting hole that allows code to be executed in the local zone rather than the Internet zone.

Even though IE7 will warn users that a script is running the flaw will allow the program to be run even if a user disallows the execution of the program. Heise says it was able to reproduce the hole on Windows XP SP2 and IE7.

With Windows Vista systems running User Account control attackers can only spy on information. Heise says users are warned to not print web pages with links tables until Microsoft issues a patch for the flaw.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
