Hackers Force Quick IE Fix

Any time you have dozens of hackers attacking thousands of systems, you know a fix is on the way. And that's just what IE is getting. A day after Microsoft released a workaround but no promise of a fix, the company reversed course and is slaving away on an out-of-cycle patch due today.

The attacks originally focused on IE 7 but spread down to IE 5 and 6, all the way up to the IE 8 beta. This is one patch well worth installing.
