AOL Working On Patch For Instant Messenger Vulnerability

America Online is working on a patch for what security researchers are calling a “major vulnerability” in the company’s highly popular Instant Messenger application.

Researchers at Core Security Technologies Wednesday disclosed a bug that they say could severely impact the millions of registered users of AOL’s instant-messaging service, AIM. The flaw, according to Core Security, would enable a series of attacks — enabling a remote hacker to execute malicious code, exploit Internet Explorer bugs, and inject scripting code in the IE browser.
