Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability

Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability -- Microsoft has released a pair of Internet Explorer updates aimed at resolving a security vulnerability related to digital certificates - in the right situation, an attacker could use it to enable a number of identity spoofing attacks. The updates - version 5.1.6 for Mac OS 9 and 5.2.2 for Mac OS X - also include all other recent fixes. Microsoft made no release notes available, but it's unlikely that the new versions incorporate any new features. Microsoft didn't even update Internet Explorer's installer in the Mac OS X version, which unnecessarily insists on quitting all active applications. Version 5.1.6 is a 5.4 MB download; version 5.2.2 is a 7.2 MB download. [ACE]
