Microsoft to ship emergency IE patch to thwart active attacks

Quote:
Microsoft has announced plans to ship a critical out-of-band Internet Explorer update tomorrow (Friday, September 21) with fixes for a dangerous browser vulnerability.

The emergency fix comes a week after news emerged that a zero-day flaw in the browser was being exploited in targeted attacks.

The vulnerability affects all versions of the browser up to Internet Explorer 9. The newest IE version 10 is not affected by this issue.
