April IE Security Update is Available

  • Comments 20

Hello. My name is Al Billings and I'm a test engineer on the Internet Explorer test team posting to the IE Blog for the first time.

I want to announce that the April 2005 security updates are available and that a critical update for Internet Explorer is included:

  • MS05-020 – Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (890923)

This contains fixes for the following vulnerabilities:

Details on the vulnerabilities and workarounds can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS05-020.mspx.

This is a “critical” update and affects all supported IE configurations from IE5.01 to IE6 for XPSP2. It is also a cumulative update. It includes hotfixes that have been released since the release of MS04-004 or MS04-025 but they will only be installed on systems that need them.

I encourage everybody to download these updates and other non-IE updates via Windows Update. Windows users are also strongly encouraged to turn on automatic updates on their systems so updates are downloaded more easily.

Al
