"Microsoft (MSFT) on Monday said it plans to take the unusual step of issuing a security patch as quickly as possible to stem a newly discovered flaw in its Internet Explorer Web browser that cybercrooks have already begun exploiting to take control of victims' computers.

The flaw in Explorer's Vector Markup Language (VML) coding is alarming because hackers and cyberthieves have already begun using it to plant malicious computer code on at least 2,000 websites, according to security firm VeriSign iDefense. "
