Microsoft has released the Security Patch for a recently discovered critical security bug in Internet Explorer. The flaw in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer could allow criminals to take control of people’s computers and steal their passwords, internet experts say.
Microsoft in its description for the security update says
This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
Following this, many security advisors had asked users to stop using Internet Explorer till a patch is released.
Microsoft has now released an out of turn patch for this Serious Security Flaw. You can grab this update if you have Automatic Updates turned on or by going to http://update.microsoft.com. I would suggest everyone using Windows to apply this patch immediately.
