Microsoft Investigating IE Mouse Tracking Flaw, Says Users Not Affected Yet

An anonymous reader writes "News broke on Wednesday of a new Internet Explorer vulnerability that allows an attacker to track your mouse cursor anywhere on the screen, even if the browser isn’t being actively used. On Thursday, Microsoft confirmed it is looking into the issue and denied reports that the flaw is already being exploited. “We are currently investigating this issue, but to date there are no reports of active exploits or customers that have been adversely affected,” a Microsoft spokesperson told TNW. “We will provide additional information as it becomes available and will take the appropriate action to protect our customers.”"
