Surprise: Microsoft issues IE security update for Windows XP

Microsoft rolled out a security update to patch a critical security flaw in all supported versions of Internet Explorer. The biggest surprise perhaps is that the company decided to make the update available to users of Windows XP, despite that this operating system is no longer supported by the software giant.

Adrienne Hall, Microsoft’s General Manager for Trustworthy Computing, explains Microsoft released the patch for Windows XP due to the proximity to the end of support for Windows XP.
Even though Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and is past the time we normally provide security updates, we’ve decided to provide an update for all versions of Windows XP (including embedded), today. We made this exception based on the proximity to the end of support for Windows XP.
