IE patch carries security bug

CNET "There's more trouble with Microsoft's latest Internet Explorer patch: It introduces a serious new security flaw on some Windows systems.
The vulnerability could let miscreants hijack a Windows PC running IE 6 with Service Pack 1 and the MS06-042 update installed, Microsoft said in a security advisory published on Tuesday. The flaw lies in the way IE handles long Web addresses and could be exploited by luring users to specially crafted Web sites, according to the advisory. "
