Submission + - Microsoft's 'Fix it' Tool for Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8 Flaw Bypassed-> 1

hypnosec writes: Security researchers have managed to bypass the recently released “Fix it” tool by Microsoft meant to patch vulnerabilities in old Internet Explorer browsers. Researchers over at Exodus Intelligence said on Friday that they have found a way to bypass the “Fix it” by revere engineering the tool. The timing for the announcement couldn’t have been worse as Microsoft has already announced about next Patch Tuesday through its advance notification. It is all the more surprising as this particular bulletin didn’t have any information about the latest IE flaw.
