As ZDnet reports. Microsoft on Friday released a patch for Internet Explorer designed to close three critical holes in the browser, including one that paved the way for the Download.Ject Trojan horse.
The software maker offered a work-around earlier this month and had promised in recent days that a comprehensive fix would be coming soon. Microsoft has also worked with law enforcement to shut down the Russian server that had been the source of malicious code.
The new patch, which is available from Microsoft's security Web site, closes the hole, and Microsoft encouraged all IE users to update their browsers. Technically, the flaw is what's known as a cross-domain vulnerability, through which an attacker is able to cross a security boundary within the browser to deliver and execute malicious code.
