Microsoft has released a security update that resolves the vulnerability in its Internet Explorer web browser that was announced earlier this week. This update covers versions 6 through 11 of the browser software.
If you have Windows configured to install updates automatically, this critical update will be downloaded and installed automatically within the next few days.
If you do not have Windows configured to install updates automatically or would like to go ahead and update Internet Explorer, OIT recommends applying the update immediately by checking for updates using the Windows Update service from the Control Panel.
System administrators are encouraged to apply the update immediately using your update management software.
If you need help applying your Windows updates, please contact the OIT HelpDesk at 865-974-9900. For more information and links to Microsoft Support, visit the OIT Security website.
