Microsoft has released a temporary patch to fix a "zero-day", or previously unknown, vulnerability in its Internet Explorer (IE) web browser.

The software giant said the bug, which relates to the browser's memory, could affect all versions of IE6 to 10.

Attackers could set up websites specifically designed to exploit the vulnerability, Microsoft said, and then run malicious code on users' computers.

Targeted attacks directed at IE8 and 9 had already been reported, it said.Microsoft Releases Temporary Patch For IE Zero Day Vulnerability [bbc.co.uk]
