4 new security bugs discovered in Internet Explorer

Do you use Internet Explorer on your smartphone? Security researchers are warning about four exploits that could let a hacker take control of your phone. These are present in even the latest version of IE for smartphones.

The flaws were found within the IE code for mobile devices last November by the TippingPoint staff. TippingPoint is a company owned by HP and its services are used to uncover bugs, glitches and flaws in certain computer programs.

Once TippingPoint uncovered the flaw, the team let Microsoft officials know about the potential risks.

Microsoft acknowledged that the flaw could let attackers push dangerous computer code onto IE users' mobile gadgets but asked TippingPoint to withhold from disclosing the information so they could have time to work on a patch.
