Unpatched hole could cause systems to send out Twitter posts without the user's knowledge.

eSecurity Planet: Google researcher Chris Evans has gone pubic with an Internet Explorer 8 vulnerability that could force systems to send out Twitter posts without the user's knowledge. Evans said that Microsoft has not patched the hole despite his warning, so he published the exploit "in an attempt to get this bug fixed."

Evans is the second Google employee to publish a Microsoft vulnerability in the past few months.
