As we (and much of the internet) reported last week, Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6 through 11 are vulnerable to a zero-day security exploit. Late last week Microsoft released a security update to patch this vulnerability.

Late last week Microsoft released an “out of band” security update for Internet Explorer, including IE running on Windows XP that was not expected. IronEdge has worked diligently to ensure this patch is fully tested prior to deployment to our ManagedIRON clients.

“We’ve decided to provide an update for all versions of Windows XP (including embedded), today,” said Microsoft’s Adrienne Hall in an official TechNet blog post. “We made this exception based on the proximity to the end of support for Windows XP.” Despite the fix it is stressed that XP users must upgrade to a supported version of Microsoft’s Windows operating system.

For our ManagedIRON clients, IronEdge has completed testing this security update and have begun deploying it to all customers. Please be sure to leave your computer system powered on overnight to ensure your PC receives this critical update. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact our support team at 832-910-9222 or open a ticket for assistance.
