    UPDATE: Hundreds of malicious Web sites are attempting to exploit the most
    critical of two flaws announced last week in Microsoft's browser,
    convincing two companies to release workarounds late Monday to head off the
    threat.

  2. Here is ISC's take on the temporary patches... Source :

    This is one site that I do trust with my security. If they say don't
    use IE at all, then I won't use it. If they say follow Microsoft's
    advice, then that's my recommendation. And, for the people who will say
    that they are a "Microsoft Puppet", they were extremely critical of how
    Microsoft handled the WMF vulnerability. Just go back through their
    archives and look.

    P.S. Nice false follow-up. It almost tricked me into not being able to
    post my reply.

  4. The followup that you had set up didn't exist for me. Or, since I don't
    subscribe to it, it returned an error. On my initial assumption, I took
    that to mean that you purposefully set up a fake followup. However, I did
    notice after the fact that you had sent your original post there. For the
    misinterpretation, I do apologize.
