Advance Notification for Out-of-Band Bulletin Release

The out-of-band security update announced yesterday Microsoft Security Advisory 979352 is scheduled to be released tomorrow, 21 January 2010, as close to 10 AM (PST) as possible. The update is described by Jerry Bryant:
"This is a standard cumulative update, accelerated from our regularly scheduled February release, for Internet Explorer with an aggregate severity rating of Critical. It addresses the vulnerability related to recent attacks against Google and small subset of corporations, as well as several other vulnerabilities. Once applied, customers are protected against the known attacks that have been widely publicized. We recommend that customers install the update as soon as it is available. For customers using automatic updates, this update will automatically be applied once it is released."
Although Microsoft reports that they continue to see only limited attacks, with the only successful attacks they are aware of against Internet Explorer 6, it is, nonetheless, recommended that anyone who has yet to update to Internet Explorer 8 would benefit from the improved security protection available with IE8.

Additional information is available in the Advance Notification for Out-of-Band Bulletin Release.
