Security pros provide interim IE patch

CNET "A group of security professionals has created a third-party fix for a recently discovered Internet Explorer flaw that's increasingly being used in cyberattacks.
The group, which calls itself the Zeroday Emergency Response Team, or ZERT, created the patch so IE users can protect themselves while Microsoft works on an official fix
'Certain members of the group feel that the risk associated with this vulnerability is so great that they can't wait for a patch. Some users might agree with that and apply this patch,' ZERT spokesman Randy Abrams said Friday. Abrams is director of technical education at security company ESET and volunteers with ZERT. "
