Microsoft sure has a lot of running work to do. Just a day after a Zero Day flaw was detected in Word, a new flaw has been detected in Windows Media Player. There is a detailed explanation for it as below: The Windows Media Player library WMVCORE.
Just when we were settling into the so called more secure versions of the two most popular browsers, Robert Chapin has stated that both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2 are vulnerable to what he dubbed as a reverse cross-site request, or RCSR.
