Internet Explorer can track your mouse anywhere on the scree,even when you aren’t browsing
A new Internet Explorer vulnerability has been discovered that allows an attacker to track your mouse cursor anywhere on the screen, even if the browser is minimized. All supported versions of Microsoft’s browser are reportedly affected: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, and IE10.
Explorer can track your mouse movements anywhere on the screen,even if the Internet Explorer window is minimized. The vulnerability is particularly troubling because it compromises the security of virtual keyboards and virtual keypads.. And Microsoft, which was informed of the massive potential security hole over two months ago, has no plans to fix it. Which means that as you explore the web, the web can explore you right back.
Affected properties of the Event object are altKey, altLeft, clientX, clientY, ctrlKey, ctrlLeft, offsetX, offsetY, screenX, screenY, shiftKey, shiftLeft, x and y.
