In midst of attacks from Firefox fans Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 has another vulnerability added to its collection. Security company Secunia has discovered a flaw in IE7 which can be exploited by a malicious website to spoof the address bar, however the company rated the flaw as less critical.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of the "document.open()" method and can be exploited to spoof the address bar if e.g. the user enters a new website manually in the address bar, which is commonly exercised as best practice.

Older versions might be also be affected but there are no reports available yet. This vulnerability is extremely important for the Redmond company as its top browser, Internet Explorer 7 is involved into the battle with Firefox and other applications for the leader position of the category.

Solution:
Close all browser windows after visiting untrusted websites.
