Microsoft out-of-band security update for Internet Explorer

Microsoft released an urgent security update today for Internet Explorer on all currently supported versions of Windows.

Here is the new security update:

  • MS08-078 - addresses a vulnerability in Internet Explorer (KB 960714)

How to get the Updates

If you are using Windows Vista you can manage your updates through the control panel. For more information, see Windows Vista: How to update your operating system.

To manually download available updates, go to Microsoft Update or in Windows Vista go to your control panel. After your computer has been scanned to see which updates it needs, click the Custom button to find and choose the update you want to install. We recommend you install all High-Priority Security and Critical updates immediately.

We recommend that you get the updates delivered automatically to your PC. When your computer is on and connected to the Internet, the most current security updates are automatically downloaded and installed. To learn how to turn on automatic updating for your particular operating system, see Update your computer automatically.
