IE Hole Still a Hole

This month's Patch Tuesday was almost insanely light -- maybe because not all flaws got patched!

First and foremost is an IE flaw in its graphics rendering engine that could let hackers install malware and gain elevated privileges (two of hackers' favorite things). Microsoft is working on a fix, but like Paul Masson, will ship no patch before its time. That doesn't mean Microsoft will wait till another Patch Tuesday. When the fix is in, it may ship it out-of-band.
