QUOTE:  A critical Internet Explorer vulnerability, announced and patched by Microsoft in June’s Patch Tuesday, is being exploited in the wild.  The vulnerability is CVE-2012-1875 (don’t expect any detail – this link is just boilerplate stuff), patched in MS12-037.  SophosLabs has seen numerous attempts to exploit this vulnerability (Sophos products detect it as Exp/20121875-A).  Cunningly-crafted JavaScript code – which can be embedded in a web page to foist the exploit on unsuspecting vistors – is circulating freely on the internet.
