Microsoft Releases IE Patch for Aurora Vulnerability

Internet Explorer logoToday, Microsoft released a patch (KB978207) to address the IE security hole discovered after the Google attacks of last week.  Interestingly, if you notice the patch isn’t just for IE6, but also IE7 and IE8, as discussed in our previous post.

If you have automatic updates enabled (as you should) this patch will be downloaded and installed automatically, but if you can’t wait (for example if you have a Windows Server 2003 or 2008 with auto-updates disabled), you can go to the link below and download and install it yourself:
