Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-040

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-040: "Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-040" - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (889293) - Critical

Straying away from it's Black Tuesday policy, Microsoft has decided that this remote code execution vulnerability in Internet Explorer was serious enough to release a patch immediately. Windows XP SP 2 and versions previous to IE 6.x are not affected. Also not affected: Firefox, which I still fully endorse as the alternative to IE.
