    Earthquake and Tsunami Donation Appeal

    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012 I didn’t expect to be posting before next year, but given the situation in southern Asian and eastern Africa, I thought it important to post something to help those affected by the earthquake and the tsunami. You can find a good list of organizations to which you can make a donation on Microsoft’s Helping Victims of the South Asian Earthquake and Tsunami web page. There are plenty of other sites with information...

    Happy Holidays!

    The information published in this post is now out-of-date. —IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012 I want to comment on a couple of things before we all disappear for the holidays.

    New IE Security Update for IE6 SP1 and IE6 (but not IE6 in XPSP2 or Windows Server 2003)

    Today we released a security update for IE, MS04-040. This fixes a heap-based buffer overflow that allows remote execution (see CAN-2004-1050 for more details on the specifics of the issue). Full details on the security update can be found in the security bulletin . If you are running IE6 SP1 or IE 6 I strongly suggest you go to Windows Update to get this security release. It’s nice to see the results of all the hard work we put into making XPSP2 and Windows Server 2003 more secure, since users running...
