Microsoft releases emergency security patches

Quote
Microsoft has taken the unusual step of releasing out-of-band patches for severe security flaws in all versions of Internet Explorer, along with related holes in the Microsoft Active Template Library included with Visual Studio.

Microsoft generally only releases patches outside of its normal monthly cycle for the most dangerous security flaws. The IE risks involve "components and controls that have been developed using vulnerable versions of the Microsoft Active Template Library", according to Microsoft, and could allow an attacker to run commands or download malware on a vulnerable PC if you simply view a malicious web page. Such drive-by-download attacks are a favourite among Internet attackers.

A heads up for you.  :gum:
