Only days on the heel of the disastrous Heartbleed security bug, Microsoft issued an advisory late Saturday night that they had discovered a glaring hole in Internet Explorer.

It is a variant of what is called a zero day bug, and it can allow an attacker to execute malicious program code.

The vulnerability is considered severe enough to warrant US agency intervention in managing it.

Today, less then two days later, Geekwire reports that the US government warns that users should not run the affected version until a fix it is delivered.

Internet Explorer users, take note!
