Yep, just saw that on Slashdot.

 

Coolest thing in the world: this one affects every browser out there except..... get this.... <drum rolls>.... Internet Explorer!! :) ;)

 

It's about time, I'd say :P

 

Moving for organization.

Yeah, they were to busy finding a bigger exploit :group:
security researchers are reporting a new vulnerability in SP2 that could allow a malicious Web site to deposit an attack program on a user's system.

 

The attack utilizes Internet Explorer's drag-and-drop features and the Windows "shell folders" to copy an executable from a malicious Web site to a user's startup folder, from which it would execute the next time the user logged on. The researcher who reported the problem to security mailing lists provided proof-of-concept code that leaves a file named "malware.exe" in the user's startup folder.

This is after the hot fix :) read the rest here http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1637596,00.asp
