Out-of-Band Update: Internet Explorer Posted by Sean @ 14:59 GMT

Microsoft is releasing a cumulative update for its Internet Explorer browser.

The update is out-of-band and patches an exploited vulnerability in IE 6 and 7. The update also fixes 9 additional vulnerabilities, and for those, Internet Explorer 8 and Windows 7 are included in the affected software. Automatic updates will therefore be available for most Windows systems later today.

Microsoft's Security Response Center and Security Bulletin have additional details.
