"Microsoft has issued warnings about a serious flaw in Internet Explorer
that allows attackers to hijack a PC via the popular browser

Researcher Adam Thomas uncovered the exploit which revolves around the way
that the Internet Explorer browser handles a particular form of graphics
known as vector graphics.

anything they want on the target machine.
