Patch Tuesday Leads to Attack Wednesday
A day after Microsoft publicly fixed 28 holes (including four Internet Explorer flaws), a researcher found that hackers already have an attack for IE 7

IE and Firefox do a great job of crashing on their own, at least on my aging
Latitude D520) and can then inject malicious code upon browser restart.
There may well be a fresh patch to beat back these attacks. We'll keep you
