Microsoft fixes critical IE flaw
« Reply #4 on: September 20, 2012, 22:20 »
Microsoft says it has issued a provisional fix for the Internet Explorer bug that earlier this week saw security officials advise users to drop the browser.

The company said the provisional fix would protect end users until Microsoft launches an "out of band" emergency update tomorrow.

The flaw makes PCs vulnerable to malicious code hosted on websites and affects Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions of the browser.

"Earlier this week, an issue impacting Internet Explorer affected a small number of customers. The potential exists, however, that more customers could be affected," said Yunsun Wee, director of Trustworthy Computing, in a Microsoft blog post.

“We have released a 'Fix it' that is available to address that issue.  This is an easy, one-click solution that will help protect your computer right away. It will not affect your ability to browse the web, and it does not require a reboot of your computer."
