Microsoft said today it will issue a fix soon for a security flaw that affects users of Internet Explorer versions 6 through 9.
Uncovered this past weekend, the security hole could compromise the PCs of IE users who surf to a malicious Web site. The flaw is being actively exploited to deliver a back-door trojan known as "Poison Ivy."
The software giant said in a security advisory this afternoon that a solution to the flaw would be released in the next few days.
