imageJust an FYI that an out of band release is scheduled for tomorrow at 10:00am Pacific time.  The release is to address a single issue but in order to provide the broadest protections possible to customers we’ll be releasing two separate security bulletins:

  1. One Security Bulletin for Visual Studio
  2. One Security Bulletin for Internet Explorer

According to the MSRC:

While we can’t go into specifics about the issue prior to release, we can say that the Visual Studio bulletin will address an issue that can affect certain types of applications. The Internet Explorer bulletin will provide defense-in-depth changes to Internet Explorer to help provide additional protections for the issues addressed by the Visual Studio bulletin. The Internet Explorer update will also address vulnerabilities rated as Critical that are unrelated to the Visual Studio bulletin that were privately and responsibly reported.
