Updated Security Bulletin MS04-025

On July 30 Microsoft released a security bulletin and patch, "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (867801)," which as I wrote last week, corrects three critical problems in Internet Explorer . On August 1 the company updated the bulletin and patch , stating that "s\[ubsequent\] to the release of this security bulletin, Microsoft was made aware that the update provided for Windows XP customers running the new version of Windows Update, Windows Update Version 5, did not contain the final release code for the vulnerabilities addressed in the security bulletin. Microsoft has corrected the update and is re-releasing this bulletin to advise of the availability of a revised update available to Windows Update Version 5 customers. Customers who are utilizing Windows Update Version 4, the vast majority of customers, are not affected by this revision."
