Just done the one I am using a few more to do tomorrow. Funny thing for an IE update it did not change the version so the firewall didn't ask for permission as it usuallly does after an IE update.

which has been irritating me for 24 hours - since the BBC and others splashed it all over the airways and print media. "Up to 10,000 sites affected" - about 0.2% of the web - but "security experts" are recommending using a different browser.

If I was of a cynical nature, I would say that this is spread around by those "security experts" anxious to highlight a virtually non-existent problem in order to gain publicity and consultancy fees.

Always open to a different point of view though?

Yes, that is what everyone is on about - a damn nuisance, my partners' PC has been infected - if that is the word - she is at work at the moment, but is hoping the fix comes soon.

I think this updates blocks the hole in the browser, but I do not think it will help a machine that has already been exploited.
