    Exclamation Internet Explorer's latest security risk: Cookiejacking

    A computer security researcher has found a flaw in Microsoft Corp's widely used Internet Explorer browser that he said could let hackers steal credentials to access FaceBook, Twitter and other websites.

    He calls the technique "cookiejacking."

    Microsoft said there is little risk a hacker could succeed in a real-world cookiejacking scam.

    "Given the level of required user interaction, this issue is not one we consider high risk," said Microsoft spokesman Jerry Bryant.

    The vulnerability affects all versions of Internet Explorer, including IE9. The threat is similar to give rights to an App to bypass UAC manually. So beware while you are online and visiting malicious site.
