Interim Fix Released for Critical IE Flaw

Microsoft released an emergency configuration update over the July Fourth U.S. holiday that for the first time gives Internet Explorer users protection against the specific vulnerabilities exploited by the Download.Ject attack.
“We recommend that customers immediately install this configuration change through Windows Update,” Microsoft said in a statement released Friday evening.
Microsoft’s decision to release the configuration update 11 days before its next regularly scheduled Patch Tuesday on July 13 underscores what a serious problem the IE flaw represents. It is only the second time Microsoft has patched a flaw on any day other than the second Tuesday of the month since the company moved to a monthly patch cycle in October
