Internet Explorer was found to have a flaw that allows hackers to steal cookies to access their accounts on some websites. The bug was found by a security researcher Rosario Valotta who said it could let hackers steal credentials to access FaceBook, Twitter and other websites.

"Any website. Any cookie. Limit is just your imagination," said Valotta, an independent Internet security researcher based in Italy.

Hackers can exploit the flaw to access a data file stored inside the browser known as a "cookie," which holds the login name and password to a web account, Valotta said via email

As a perpetrator access the cookie they can use it to access the same site concludes Valotta who dubs the technique as "cookiejacking."............ more

I read about this yesterday or two days ago. Really doesn't surprise me which is a shame because I quite like IE9 but isn't my primary browser of choice.
