Microsoft is investigating a new flaw in the Windows operating system but didn't provide details on their Security Response Center Blog.

...we’re looking into new public proof of concept code around a possible vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. So far we’re not aware of any attacks attempting to use vulnerability or any customer impact, but we wanted to let everyone know we’re investigating.

What we know at the moment is that the vulnerability can be attacked through Internet Explorer and requires user interaction on the page before the attack can occur...

Astronaut: Houston we have a problem...

Houston: What is it?

Astronaut: We can't tell you.

Houston: Why not?

Astronaut: Because it hasn't occured yet...

Houston: Then how do you know it will happen?

Astronaut: We saw some code laying around...

Houston: So.. we always have sloppy work

Astronaut: Correct, however, this is leading to an "unknown" problem...

laymans terms of what Microsoft is doing.
