Submission + - Microsoft patches the IE patch problem

fatboy writes: Microsoft has re-released security update 918899 (MS06-042) to fix the problem of IE crashing when surfing to sites that use HTTP 1.1 and use zip compression. Being an IE on Win2k user at work, I was really suprised this problem made it's to my desktop. Forget regression testing, did Microsoft even open the browser and surf the net before they rolled this out?
