IE hole was the reason for attacks on GOOGLE !


It was the Internet Explorer hole which helped the hacker to attack on Google and many other companies Microsoft confirmed on Thursday. These recent attacks raised the question if Google will survive in China or not. Now after Microsoft has found the problem they are trying to rectify it as soon as possible to prevent such kind of incidents.


Microsoft told that Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 of all their popular operating systems like Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows Server 2003,2008 are vulnerable to such kind of attacks. It was also found that the attacks were also made on companies like Adobe, McAffe including Google.


The fix to this will be included in the next patch by Microsoft which will be released on February 9.

A hole is a kind of software bug or a weak code in software which the attackers can break. It can also be a malware which the attackers send on the emails which are used for password theft..
