Microsoft to patch shortcut bug

Microsoft is issuing an urgent security update to fix a flaw in the way Windows handles shortcuts.

The bug means that attackers can craft booby-trapped shortcuts that allow them to take over a target computer.

Many users set up shortcuts to get to programs and places in Windows that they use regularly.

Microsoft said it was releasing the patch because it had seen an increase in the number of attacks on the vulnerability.

The patch will be released on 2 August at 1800 BST (1000 PDT). The fix will be sent out to those that automatically update their machines. It will also be available via the Windows Update site.
