Microsoft has reportedly fixed the infamous 'zero-day exploit' in Internet Explorer even for Windows XP which is no longer supported by the American company.
The bug allowed hackers to install malware on one's computer without permission, and allowed hacker to steal user's personal data, track online behavior, or gain control of the computer, CNET reported.
Usually, Microsoft issues security patches on every second Tuesday of the month but because of the severity of the bug, the patch was released on last Thursday, the report added.
