Servers New Security Patch for IE

New Security Patch for IE




Christopher Rice

          Are you
still worried about vulnerability to security holes?  Well, it looks like
Microsoft has heard your cries for help and is acting.  Bill Gates has
stated “security before functionality”.  That sounds like someone who
understands the need to lock things down.

Are you still worried about vulnerability to security holes? Well, it looks like Microsoft has heard your cries for help and is acting. Bill Gates has stated ‘security before functionality’. That sounds like someone who understands the need to lock things down.

          In an
effort to secure IE (probably one of the least secure pieces of the MSFT suite),
Microsoft has posted a new fix (well somewhat new — it’s from the end of March). 

          The “28
March 2002 Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer” update eliminates all
previously addressed security vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer, as
well as two new vulnerabilities which are discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin
MS02-015. Download now to protect your computer from these vulnerabilities, the
most serious of which could allow a malicious user to run code on your computer.

a mail with any more interesting fixes or product updates.
