Internet Explorer 9.01 Now Available Via Windows Update

Internet Explorer 9.01 Now Available Via Windows Update

It's been a rather uneventful debut for Internet Explorer 9, with Microsoft's latest browser sneaking by its first few Patch Tuesdays with requiring any updates to its code. Now, however, it's time to plug a hole in IE9.

The June 14th round of patches from Microsoft included 34 vulnerabilities spanning Windows, Office, SQL Server, Silverlight, and Internet Explorer. This particular bulletin is rated critical, so it's imperative that you run Windows Update or manually download the patch as soon as possible -- here are the download pages for:

Following the update, your browser should report itself at Internet Explorer 9.01 under the gear menu > about Internet Explorer.

As is typically the case with browser-based bugs, this one could potentially allow an attacked to remotely execute arbitrary code -- but that's assuming you've been duped into wandering over to a rather specifically designed web page. Still, better safe than sorry -- run the update as soon as you can.
