Internet Explorer vulnerability allows mouse tracking

spider.io is talking about a bug they discovered in Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6-10. Evidently the bug allows tracking of your mouse movement even if the browser window has been minimized and you have a different application active.

They say that at least two companies providing display ad analytics are already using this exploit to improve their analysis.

OUCH! Yet another good reason to use any browser but IE.
