IE Cumulative Security Update Now Available
Today we released a Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer. We’ve released this Cumulative Security Update earlier than originally scheduled based on malicious activities reported on the web. The update is available via Windows Update and Microsoft Update. Most users configure their machines to update automatically; you can find more information on that here.
This update actually includes 236 separate packages for all the different languages and versions of Windows and IE that customers run and Microsoft supports worldwide. We release these packages simultaneously for all supported products and languages as part of this update. The complete matrix of browsers, operating systems, and languages is available in the security bulletin. At a high level, these packages cover:
This update addresses several vulnerabilities including the one described here. Other blog posts describe specifics. Some of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Note that IE8 users on Windows 7 have extensive defense in depth protections with DEP, ASLR, and protected mode that make remote code execution from a malicious site extremely difficult. Microsoft therefore strongly recommends customers upgrade to IE8 to benefit from these extensive defense in depth protections.
For detailed information on the contents of this update, please see the following documentation:
