Fresh from patching an Internet Explorer (IE) flaw exploited in cyberattacks on Google and other firms, Microsoft is looking into a newly exposed vulnerability in the browser software.

The demonstration revealed "an information disclosure vulnerability" in IE browsers run on XP or other operating systems if IE Protected Mode is disabled, according to senior security communications manager Jerry Bryant.

"People running IE 7 or 8 in default configurations on Windows Vista or later operating systems are not vulnerable to this issue as they benefit from Protected Mode," said Bryant.
