Microsoft to Release Out-of-Band IE Zeroday Patch Tomorrow

Today we issued our Advanced Notification Service (ANS) to advise customers that we will be releasing MS10-002 tomorrow, January 21st, 2010. We are planning to release the update as close to 10:00 a.m. PST (UTC -8) as possible. This is a standard cumulative update, accelerated from our regularly scheduled February release, for Internet Explorer with an aggregate severity rating of Critical. It addresses the vulnerability related to recent attacks against Google and small subset of corporations, as well as several other vulnerabilities. Once applied, customers are protected against the known attacks that have been widely publicized. We recommend that customers install the update as soon as it is available. For customers using automatic updates, this update will automatically be applied once it is released.

Today we also updated Security Advisory 979352 to include technical details addressing additional customer questions.
