Microsoft Releases Emergency IE Patch

leave a comment »

Microsoft have released an "out of band" patch for Internet Explorer.

This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. The security update addresses the vulnerability by modifying the way Internet Explorer validates data binding parameters and handles the error resulting in the exploitable condition.

This security update also addresses the vulnerability first described in Microsoft Security Advisory 961051.

If you have automatic updates enabled you will have this now, if you dont, make sure you go to Windows Update and get it now!
