Micro$oft (hopefully) patches 0-day flaw

Microsoft has hurried out the release and testing of a patch for the recent flaw found in their Windows operating system. Use Windows Update to get the patch, then set it to run automatically to stay up to date.

The flaw let hackers put code into images on the web that Microsoft Internet Explorer and other programs would run. The Mozilla Firefox browser doesn't execute the code without user authorization.

I bet some of the Microsoft code monkeys were working furiously over the last few days.
