I've got my XP and Vista computers set to only notify me of new updates and not to download or install them. After I started them this morning, I received a prompt about the out-of-cycle IE8 update. It's been installed. (y)

That was fast. You think they wait another day so they could make that the Dirty Dozen patch day. :p

I think they should have released it today, have the updates give you a April Fools day BSOD, now that would be funny.

Dear Mumbodog,
Firstly thanx for the info'! Considering that IE itself is JOKE, 10 holes takes the cake! I guess we are seeing more holes in the dress than the cloth! Would have been good for summer, at least!;)

PS: Is Windows 8 in the pipeline?(you may answer it, because i don't know a thing about what MS is conjuring.).

Let's not throw too many stones at IE. All these programs try to do a lot and holes get discovered My copy of Firefox just auto-morphed to 3.6.3, and how many days old was 3.6.2?

Dear antimoth,
Nobody need throw stones at IE or for that matter "MS"! The German Govt., a few weeks back black-balled IE. I respect and use FF for two reasons 1) It is open-source and 2) they throw no stones at fellow competitors like Google Chrome and mind their own business of patching(no denying that), like MS is doing right now--calling Chrome a "key logger".I have read an article which claims that the percentage of people using IE in Asian countries is dropping! In my view TEN security holes is way too big a vulnerability, considering the fact that hackers of IE do not uncover the holes "all at once"! Probably MS was taking a real nice Ester holiday(JK-Just Kidding);)!
