Microsoft releases out-of-cycle Internet Explorer patch

Following the Google hacking incident, which was allowed by an Internet Explorer vulnerability, Microsoft has taken emergency steps to patch up its browser.

The firm has released an out-of-band update for its browser – in other words, an unscheduled one-off update – and it is recommending IE users apply the fix immediately (if you haven’t got Windows set to automatically update, that is).

Microsoft’s quick move on this one isn’t surprising, what with European governments issuing warnings about using Internet Explorer, and the likes of Firefox certainly benefiting from this press.
