Trojan Rides Unpatched IE Flaw:

Attackers are taking advantage of an unpatched flaw in Internet Explorer using a Trojan to remotely run code on vulnerable computers. While the flaw remains unfixed, MS does have a scan & removal tool that will help infected PCs. If you think your PC might be in question, head on over to Windows Live Safety Center and scan your rig.

Malicious software that exploits the security flaw to download a Trojan horse to vulnerable computers has been found on the Internet, according to Microsoft. Detection and removal capabilities for the “TrojanDownloader:Win32/Delf.DH” have been added to Microsoft's recently launched online security-scanning tool.
