Internet Explorer 'hit with new set of security flaws'

A US security research firm has found another set of vulnerabilities within Internet Exlporer, only a day after Microsoft released an emergency software update.

Boston-based Core Security Technologies discovered the vulnerabilities on Friday January 22, only a day after the technology giant had released an unscheduled security patch to protect users of the most popular browser in the world from the flaws used by the hackers who pried into the email accounts of human rights activists in China.
