Microsoft Gets Flooded with IE7 Bug Reports

Tom Sanders writes on

Bug reports and security warnings have started poring in mere hours after Microsoft made a public beta 2 of its forthcoming internet explorer browser available.

Security researcher Tom Ferris exposed a vulnerability in the browser that causes the the application to crash or execute arbitrary code when a user visits a specially crafted website.

Other users reported issues with McAfee anti-virus software. Users are unable to launch the McAfee Security Center. A Microsoft employee on the IEBlog responded that it is caused by stricter URL-scheme handling in the browser and that they are working to repair it.
