New Outlook security hole discovered

Microsoft is reportedly working on a patch for a newly discovered security hole in its Outlook program that allows intruders to take control of a PC simply by sending it an email.

Security experts said the vulnerability allows hackers to control a PC as soon as it begins to download the message, rather than counting on victims to open an e-mail attachment. Microsoft has reportedly acknowledged the flaw, saying home users are at the greatest risk and that most corporate email systems would not be affected.
