Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer

By on
This update resolves the much [URL=http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=9413]talked about[/URL] incorrect parsing of URLs that contain special characters, specifically making it possible to create a link like [URL=http://www.microsoft.com%00@techspot.com]this one[/URL], it shows up as "www.microsoft.com" in Internet Explorer but will actually bring you back here to Techspot!

When you have installed this update the above link should not work anymore. (You must restart ofcourse, this afterall is Windows). Did I mention that a browser like [URL=http://www.opera.com/]Opera[/URL] never had this problem in the first place?
