"Hackers have discovered a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer, and they've released code that could be used to attack users of Microsoft's popular browser.

The vulnerability is similar to a bug that Microsoft patched last month in a multimedia component of Internet Explorer, according to Vincent Hwang, a group product manager with Symantec's Security Response team.

Though a sample exploit of the vulnerability was posted earlier this week by hackers on the xsec.org Web site, Symantec has yet to see the code used in any attacks, according to Hwang."
