    September 2013 Internet Explorer Updates


    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-069 - Critical

    This security update resolves ten privately reported vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited the most severe of these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

    This security update is rated Critical for Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, and Internet Explorer 10 on Windows clients and Moderate for Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, and Internet Explorer 10 on Windows servers.

    I'm updating to this now using Windows Update. I'm doing it manually since I disabled automatic updating. I can't seem to read if this is just more of a security update but I would want maybe a stability update as well cause my IE 10 is still a bit buggy, especially on Facebook where its not uncommon for it to freeze.


    Appears that I also have one "optional" update for my Bluetooth module so checking for the updates today might just be worthwhile.
