internet explorer patch microsoftMicrosoft will issue an emergency
security patch Wednesday for all versions of Internet Explorer. The
patch is considered a critical fix for the security flaw currently
plaguing the IE browser. So far, more than 2 million computers are
believed to have been infected.
An advance notification of the patch published Tuesday describes it
protection for a "remote code execution" vulnerability. The move
follows Microsoft's security advisory posted last Wednesday and
updated Monday explaining the vulnerability and suggesting temporary
"workarounds" for protection.
The flaw can be used to let attackers steal personal data such as
passwords if a user visits a compromised Web site, of which at least
10,000 are thought to already exist. Thus far, the vulnerability has
been used primarily for grabbing gaming passwords for black market
sales. The hole could, however, potentially also be used to steal more
sensitive information such as banking passwords and other private
Some security analysts had gone as far as to suggest all IE users
switch to a competing browser until Microsoft found a suitable fix.
Getting the Patch
Microsoft's emergency security patch will become available Wednesday
at 1 p.m. EST at the Microsoft
Update site as well as at the Microsoft
Download Center. All users of IE5, 6, and 7 are advised to install it.
A separate patch is expected to be made available for users of IE8
Beta 2. Expect to see far more detail by midday Wednesday when
Microsoft officially issues its security bulletin.
