By | January 19, 2010 | 1 Comment

Microsoft to Release IE Patch As Soon as PossibleAs anticipation for Internet Explorer 6 security fix grows, Microsoft has decided to go “out of band” and release it as a standalone patch.

Here’s what company had to say about this:

“Given the significant level of attention this issue has generated, confusion about what customers can do to protect themselves and the escalating threat environment Microsoft will release a security update out-of-band for this vulnerability.

We take the decision to go out-of-band very seriously given the impact to customers, but we believe releasing an update out-of-band update is the right decision at this time. We will provide the specific timing of the release tomorrow.”

Microsoft also recommended customers upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 and benefit from improved security protection.

World Against Internet ExplorerAfter German Federal Office for Information Security warned users to use browser other than Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7 or 8, the French Computer Emergency Response Team is now advising the same.

In statement, it says: “pending a patch from the publisher, CERT recommends using an alternative browser.”

Microsoft’s spokesman in Germany said: “there is no threat to the general user, consequently we do not support this warning,”

Warnings come after recent IE vulnerability, which was one of the key factors, in the recent attacks on Google’s systems.
