IE and Visual Studio Get Quick Fixes

More and more, it seems Microsoft is releasing patches separate from its once-a-month Patch Tuesday. The latest out-of-band patches include an easy fix for Visual Studio and a more serious remedy for IE.

The Visual Studio patch is only for developers building custom apps, and allows programmers to craft code that hackers can't easily bypass.

The IE fix is for nearly everyone, whether you use IE 5, 6, 7 or 8, and helps prevent remote code execution. Marked as critical, security experts advise IT pros to download and install this puppy pronto.
