Microsoft Patches Its Patches

Among Microsoft's three Patch Tuesday releases today is a re release of a re released Internet Explorer patch, as well as a new patch for a Windows server patch.

Got that? The first is basically a third round patch for Internet Explorer, after researchers found yet another bug in the initial patch, MS06-042. Microsoft did not include the two new patches among its three new updates in the standard security bulletins. "The most important patch of this group is the MS06-042 IE update," says Robert Enderle, principal analyst with the Enderle Group.
