Microsoft patches critical bug in Internet Explorer

Posted on Tuesday, March 30 2010 @ 17:22:04 CEST by


Microsoft announced it will issue an out-of-band security update to fix a critical vulnerability in Internet Explorer 6 and 7. Users of Internet Explorer 8 aren't affected by this bug, but are advised to install the update as it addressed 9 additional vulnerabilities.
Today we issued our Advanced Notification Service (ANS) to advise customers that we will be releasing security update MS10-018 tomorrow, March 30, 2010, at approximately10:00 a.m. PDT (UTC-8). MS10-018 resolves Security Advisory 981374, addressing a publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7. Internet Explorer 8 is unaffected by the vulnerability addressed in the advisory and we continue to encourage all customers to upgrade to this version to benefit from the improved security protection it offers.

We recommend that customers install the update as soon as it is available. Once applied, customers are protected against the known attacks related to Security Advisory 981374. We have been monitoring this issue and have determined an out-of-band release is needed to protect customers. For customers using automatic updates, this update will automatically be applied once it is released. Additionally, because Security Bulletin MS10-18 is a cumulative update, it will also address nine other vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer that were planned for release on April 13.
