Security Update for Internet Explorer (2965111)
This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using an affected version of Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
Summary: An emergency out-of-band update will be released at 1PM Thursday for the bug in Internet Explorer being exploited in the wild. Windows XP will be patched in spite of being past its service life.
