Default AVG Security Toolbar Vulnerability Puts IE Users At Risk

If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure security toolbars are supposed to do the opposite of this. All these conditions make it possible for an attacker to execute malicious code on the computer of a user who has a vulnerable version of AVG Secure Search installed, if the user opens a specifically crafted HTML Web page, email message or attachment in Internet Explorer. The rogue code would be executed with the privileges of the logged-in user, Dormann said.
