29 sec read

Microsoft tries to get updates, patches, and fixes into their software as quickly as possible but sometimes the hackers outpace them. Such is the case with a major exploit in Internet Explorer but it has finally been fixed.

For the last decade, admins have awaited Microsoft Patch Tuesday with dread – or perhaps delight, but that seems highly doubtful. There’s no time to delay when it comes to patching this month, however, as Microsoft finally closed the gaping zero-day hole in IE that is being actively exploited in the wild by cyber crooks, nation-state hackers and pen testers. MS13-080 is a cumulative patch, obviously rated critical, that resolves 10 security issues in Internet Explorer. When it comes to deployment priority, this is number one. – See more at: http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/microsoft-finally-patches-gaping-hole-ie#sthash.17CuhmXN.dpuf
