Google's Project Zero team has discovered another security flaw in Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Edge browsers in about a week.

Last Monday, the team discovered another security vulnerability in the EMF metafiles that Microsoft uses.

This newer bug, first turned up on November 25, 2016, offers hackers a technique that would let a malicious website crash a visitor's browser with lots of code execution.

A seventeen line proof-of-concept crashes that process, with a focus on two variables rcx and rax, the Google security team asserted.

A potential hacker can affect 'rax' by modifying a few table properties such as border-spacing and the width of the first 'th' element,” Google states, so the crafted Web page just needs to point rax to the memory it controls.

The security vulnerability was first published at the end of Project Zero's ninety-day disclosure deadline, and it still remains unpatched to this day.

Two weeks ago, Microsoft delayed February's Patch Tuesday, but last week it managed to emit a whole slew of fixes for Adobe Flash. We'll keep you posted.
