    Earlier this week, an issue impacting Internet Explorer affected a small number of customers. The potential exists, however, that more customers could be affected. As a result, today we have released a Fix it that is available to address that issue. This is an easy, one-click solution that will help protect your computer right away. It will not affect your ability to browse the web, and it does not require a reboot of your computer.

    Then, on this Friday, Sept. 21, we will release a cumulative update for Internet Explorer through Windows Update and our other standard distribution channels. We recommend that you install this update as soon as it is available. If you have automatic updates enabled on our PC, you won’t need to take any action – it will automatically be updated on your machine. This will not only reinforce the issue that the Fix It addressed, but cover other issues as well.

    Today’s Advance Notification Service (ANS) provides additional details about the update we are releasing on Friday - MS12-063. We are planning to release this bulletin as close to 10 a.m. PDT as possible. This cumulative update for Internet Explorer has an aggregate severity rating of Critical. It addresses the publicly disclosed issue described in Security Advisory 2757760 as well as four other Critical-class remote code execution issues.

    We will also hold a special live webcast, during which we’ll take your questions above everything we release on Friday, Sept. 21 at 12 p.m. PDT. Click here to register.

    Thanks –

    Yunsun Wee
    Director, Trustworthy Computing."

    For those that do not know, this does not affect IE 10. I did not realize until I ran the Fit-It and it told me my IE was not affected.
