Critical Product Vulnerability Patch
Microsoft released a Critical Product Vulnerability update, MS10-018, on March 30th. After extensive testing, we have found this patch to be safe for most computers. If you are a Managed Services customer, we have already installed the patch on your workstations. If you are not a Managed Services customer but subscribe to Windows Updates, it has already been installed through that. If you are unsure if it has been installed or would like help installing the patch on your workstation, please send a request to: email@example.com
Details of MS10-018:
This Security update resolves seven privately reported vulnerabilities and one publicly disclosed vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The more severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer.
The Security update addresses these vulnerabilities by modifying the way that Internet Explorer handles objects in memory, validates input parameters, and filters HTML attributes.
A restart of each pc is required once the install is complete.
