Apparently a code similar to that used by websites to change the appearance of your cursor can be used to attack a vulnerability in all recent versions of Windows including Vista.

I hope we see a patch for this soon.. Obviously it's not good news for anybody. I guess just be careful what sites you go to in the near future as this becomes more widely known about by would be hackers and virus builders.

Until a fix is released it would seem that every Windows based computer is at risk... Bummer!
