People may like to kown why it's important to download this patch as soon as possible. At the end of last week a trojan was released that if a PC became infected, would send the key strokes used to a server in Russia. It was used to look for online banking, credit card and personal information. The IP address of the server was soon blocked, but the source code used for the trojan was released for anybody to use. CERT (its some major security organistation) in the USA have recommended that people do not use IE6 at all at present.

Another browser to use meantime which is Free is Mozilla Firefox.
