Microsoft releases Critical update for Internet Explorer

Dec 18, 2008

Microsoft on Wednesday released a patch for a critical security flaw in Internet Explorer that is being actively exploited via hacked websites. The vulnerability could exploit Javascript to allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. According to Microsoft, 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.

Microsoft rated the security update critical, for Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, and Internet Explorer 7 and recommends users to apply the patch as soon as possible. So, if you are using Internet Explorer, apply the update immediately.

    Don’t we get an automatic notification when there are updates to install? I get them for Firefox. If not, how do I install the patch? I use both, IE and Firefox browsers.
