This week, internet security firm Secunia has found a second flaw in the browser that can effectively permit the same thing.
It was originally thought that the two bugs may have been related, but Microsoft has confirmed they are not and is considering a patch for both.
Both flaws open up a fully patched IE browser running Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Last month, Microsoft issued a fistful of patches for IE. The company’s next scheduled security patch day is Tuesday 9 May.
