Out of band for IE security issue
quote:
Today, we are providing Advance Notification
»technet.microsoft.com/security/b···MS13-JAN
to customers that at approximately 10 a.m. PST on Monday, January 14, 2013, we will release an out-of-band security update to fully address the issue described in Security Advisory 2794220. While we have still seen only a limited number of customers affected by the issue, the potential exists that more customers could be affected in the future. The bulletin has a severity rating of Critical, and it addresses CVE-2012-4792. Internet Explorer 9-10 are not affected by this issue and as always, we encourage customers to upgrade to the latest browser version.
»www.windows.com/ie
We recommend that you install this update as soon as it is available. This update for Internet Explorer 6-8 will be made available through Windows Update and our other standard distribution channels. If you have automatic updates enabled on your PC, you won’t need to take any action. If you applied the Fix it released in Security Advisory 2794220, you won’t need to uninstall it before applying the security update.
We will be holding a special, live webcast, during which we’ll take your questions regarding this update, on Monday, January 14 at 12 p.m. PST. Click here to register.
For all the latest information, you can follow the MSRC team on Twitter at @MSFTSecResponse.
Thanks,

Got it for IE6 in that old OS. It did require a reboots for two XP SP3 machines. What about your IE8 in XP?

My two 64-bit W7 SP1 machines did not need reboots with their IE8.

I guess XP requires reboot no matter what.

This sort of patch would certainly require a reboot to take effect.

I just noticed my 64-bit Vista HPE SP2's IE7 needed a reboot from it. :/

For those that have just patched, it is suggested that the FixIt be removed post patching, assuming you had applied the FixIt, per MS13-008
quote:
However, the Fix it is no longer needed after the security update is installed, so we are recommending that you uninstall it after you have applied the update to your system.
