ZERT Issues 'Stopgap' IE Patch

If you're still not worried about the latest zero day attack that's hitting Internet Explorer, maybe you should be. Amid increasingly dire warnings from SANS and other organizations that this could be the next WMF, the Zeroday Emergency Response Team (ZERT) considered it urgent enough to release the first patch for the VML browser bug before Microsoft.

ZERT, a nonprofit group made up of prominent security researchers from the vendor and research communities, says it releases these types of patches when zero-day exploits appear to be a serious risk to the public and/or the Internet. That's a time when you just can't wait for the vendor's patch, according to ZERT. Dark Reading - Desktop Security - ZERT Issues 'Stopgap' IE Patch - Security News Analysis
