A cumulative security update for Internet Explorer has been released to address two reported vulnerabilities, each of which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on an infected machine.
Microsoft has issued a cumulative security update for Internet Explorer (IE) to address two reported vulnerabilities, which were caused by memory corruption condition resulting from an attempt to access deleted objects in memory. Upon successful exploitation, an attacker could be able to execute arbitrary code and take control of the affected system.
These issues have been fixed by introducing a modification in the way that IE handles objects in memory. Users are recommended to install the latest update to their machine as a protection measure against possible exploit attempts.
