IE Out-of-Band Patch Released

Ralph DeFrangesco

Earlier today, I wrote a post about a vulnerability that affected IE 5, 6, 7 and 8. Microsoft has decided to release an out-of-band patch for the vulnerability today. I thought that last Tuesday, aka mammoth patch Tuesday, would have been the last of the patches for Microsoft for the year. Fortunately, this is a welcomed patch and I am glad to see Microsoft react so quickly in getting this released.


Microsoft has rated this as a critical patch for IE 5.01, IE 6, IE service pack 1 and IE 7. It recommends that IE 8 Beta 2 users download and apply the patch to their systems as well.
