IE struck by new security bug

Yet another security bug has been found in Internet Explorer (IE).

The bug affects IE 3.0 and the Platform Preview of IE 4.0 when used in conjunction with Microsoft's PowerPoint presentations package. The bug could potentially allow a Web site hacker to gain access to executables on a user's hard drive.

Microsoft says it has no record of any user having been affected but will post a patch later today.
