Out-of-Band Cumulative Update for IE Scheduled

Microsoft is releasing security update MS10-018 tomorrow, March 30, 2010, at approximately10:00 a.m. PDT (UTC-8). MS10-018 resolves Security Advisory 981374, addressing a publicly disclosed vulnerability in both IE6 and IE7. It is important to note that IE8 is not affected by the vulnerability addressed in the advisory.

If you have yet to update to IE8, it is strongly recommended that the update be installed as soon as it is available. As stated by Jerry Bryant in Internet Explorer Cumulative Update Releasing Out-of-Band:
"Once applied, customers are protected against the known attacks related to Security Advisory 981374. We have been monitoring this issue and have determined an out-of-band release is needed to protect customers. For customers using automatic updates, this update will automatically be applied once it is released. Additionally, because Security Bulletin MS10-18 is a cumulative update, it will also address nine other vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer that were planned for release on April 13."
