Zero-day vulnerabilities in two popular instant messaging products could put millions of computer users at risk of malicious hacker attacks.

Exploit code has been released for the more serious of the two flaws — a gaping hole in Yahoo Messenger — that could expose users to code execution attacks.

Separately, Secunia has posted an alert for a security bug in AOL Instant Messenger that can be exploited by malicious people to execute arbitrary script code.
