This morning we re-released our August security update (MS06-042) for IE 6.0 SP1. This update is available through all of our normal release channels including Windows Update, Automatic Update, Download Center and our deployment tools such as WSUS.
As I mentioned Tuesday, the original release of MS06-042 introduced a new security vulnerability for IE 6.0 SP1 users. This re-release fixes that vulnerability. We recommend all IE 6.0 SP1 customers install the update immediately. Users running Windows XP SP2, Server 2003 SP1, IE 5.01 on Windows 2000, or any of the IE7 betas, The IE7 Release Candidate 1, or Windows Vista are not affected and do not need to take action.
