Enterprise security firm Core Security Technologies has disclosed a vulnerability that could affect millions of AOL Instant Messenger users.

Attackers exploiting the vulnerability could remotely execute code on a user's machine, and exploit Internet Explorer bugs without user interaction.

AOL has acknowledged the problem and has urged users to upgrade to the latest version of the AIM beta client or use its web-based AIM Express service until the problem has been addressed.
