New round of IE patches on the way

Expect that little windows update reminder thingy to start bugging you again soon, when Microsoft releases the next round of IE updates.

"Microsoft officials say the company is prepping a patch for its Internet Explorer browser to plug the vulnerability exploited by the Download.Ject attacks in June. The patch is expected sometime next week, several weeks before the next scheduled batch release of security fixes."

The soon to be plugged exploits included the ability to steal passwords and personal data, and to install various forms of malware.

Yes, Microsoft have many times failed to fix the actual root of the compromise, rather just fixing disclosed ways of utilizing it.
