    Re: Serious flaw in IE not fixed yet

    See the links in the first post in this thread. Now, they've issued the "fix", that you can find there.
    It is confusing, and involves going through some tables and picking out various patches
    that you might need.
    Edit: Whoops, the link I had in mind was
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS08-dec.mspx
    (Sorry, I seem to still not understand how to use the 1-Click Tag Panel to make this a proper link
    for posting. I clicked on the icon, then on the spot, then inserted the URL, and this was the result.)

    The fix is now available from Microsoft Update.

    It's quite easy to create the link manually: simply type <!t> before, and <!t> after the URL:

    <!t>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...08-dec.mspx<!t> becomes http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS08-dec.mspx when posted.

    If you use the 1-Click TagPanel, clicking the 5th button inserts <!t>linkURL<!t> in your post. You only need to replace the text linkURL with your URL.

    Seems that the fix is indeed available from MS Update.
    Apparently, it's KB960714. That has the December 17 date.
    (Thanks to Hans for graciously explaining how to handle
    links in the postings. This is one of the many days when
    I can almost hear the marbles rolling out as I lose them.)
