    IE Patch Tuesday vulnerabilities not actually patched


    Microsoft today issued an update to one of this week's Patch Tuesday bulletins to note that one of the vulnerabilities listed in it as being fixed was not, in fact, fixed.

    The bulletin was MS13-080: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer. It originally disclosed 10 vulnerabilities. One of them, CVE-2013-3871, is an "Internet Explorer Memory Corruption Vulnerability." The vulnerability was credited to Simon Zuckerbraun working with HP's Zero Day Initiative.

    That blog has been updated for a correction.

    Two days after the October Patch Tuesday updates, Microsoft corrected one of the security bulletins for that month to indicate that they had not in fact patched one of the vulnerabilities listed in it. That vulnerability — CVE-2013-3871 — was, in fact, patched in the November updates, specifically as part of MS13-088: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer.
