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?

The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.

Working...
