Microsoft released a Microsoft Fix it solution for Security Advisory 2847140, which relates to a vulnerability for IE8.
Although it is anticipated that there will be an update included with next week's security updates, anyone with IE8 installed is advised to install the Fix it solution. The Fix it uses the Windows application compatibility toolkit to make a small change at runtime to mshtml.dll every time IE is loaded.
Below are the links to both apply and uninstall the Fix it solution:

Another option is to install the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET), described in the "workarounds" section of the Tech Net Advisory.
If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 installed, you should have updated to IE9 or IE10. In the event you haven't, it is strongly advised that you update!
