We have published information about the IE zero-day exploit which affected IE version 6 to 9 on all operating systems on which it is available.
Not surprisingly, Microsoft announced today that they have a fix for this problem even before the cumulative patch on Friday, September 21st.
If you have automatic updates enabled on our PC, you won’t need to take any action – it will automatically be updated on your machine. This will not only reinforce the issue that the Fix It addressed, but cover other issues as well.
If for some reason you are forced to use Internet Explorer (instead of other browsers), we strongly recommend to apply the Fix immediately. Otherwise, wait for the normal update on Friday.
