Microsoft Releases Security Update for Internet Explorer Use-After-Free Vulnerability

Hopefully you read my last article. If not, read it first and then continue with this one.

Microsoft has just released an update to patch the Internet Explorer vulnerability that affects all versions from 6 to 11 in all Windows operating systems, from XP to 8.1. Surprisingly, even though support for Windows XP has just ended, Microsoft decided to make an exception and include XP in the list of operating systems covered by this update.

If you have automatic updates enabled there should be no action needed on your part. If you don’t, it is highly recommended you turn on Automatic Updates or manually download and install the update. ┬áIf you need help with this, let me know.
