We will release a Fix it in the next few days to address an issue in Internet Explorer, as outlined in the Security Advisory 2757760 that we released yesterday.  

While we have only seen a few attempts to exploit the issue, impacting an extremely limited number of people, we are taking this proactive step to help ensure Internet Explorer customers are protected and able to safely browse online.

The Fix it is an easy-to-use, one-click, full-strength solution any Internet Explorer user can install. It will not affect your ability to browse the Web, and it will provide full protection against this issue until an update is available.  It won’t require a reboot of your computer. 

This Fix it will be available for everyone to download and install within the next few days. Until then, we encourage folks to review the advisory and follow the other mitigations listed there.

Thanks,

Yunsun Wee,
Director, Trustworthy Computing
