Microsoft plans April 11 for IE bug fix

By Derek Sooman on
A patch for the latest Internet Exploder flaw won't be available until April 11, according to Microsoft. The flaw, which is already being used by hackers on hundreds of Web sites, will go unpatched until then. Microsoft claims that any attacks resulting from the flaw are limited, and that the only reason it is taking the flaw seriously is because it can hijack a user’s machine. eEye’s security company's chief hacking officer Marc Maiffret disagrees, though, claiming that two weeks is just far too long to wait in this day and age.
