IE zero-day vuln closed

by Nikola Strahija on April 12th, 2006 Microsoft has finally patched the zero-day vulnerability that was troubling Internet Explorer users. Although customers were demanding a patch to be deployed sooner, the fix came as a part of the usual monthly patch bundle.

Together with patching critical vulnerabilities in IE, Microsoft also issued updates for Outlook Express as well as for Windows FrontPage Server Extensions and SharePoint Team Services 2002.

Talking about patching Internet Explorer, it seems Microsoft knows more than the security community, because they have patched 10 bugs instead of only four, which were discovered. Other critical updates include a Windows Explorer fix (issues in the way WE handles Component Object Model objects, which could allow hackers to take over the system), and a Microsoft Data Access Components vulnerability (RDS.Dataspace Active X).
