IE users beware: RealPlayer zero-day flaw under attack

Now Real programmed the flaw, but the true culprit is ActiveX. Make no mistake about that. Microsoft and their insecure ActiveX technology lie at the heart of this.

There is a fix available. Real must have jumped through a lot of hoops to do that in such a hurry. Kudos to them for admitting the flaw and fixing it so rapidly. Obviously, Real gets the significance of things like this. A link to the fix is provided at the blog linked to above.
