    Default IE 9.0.5 Available via Windows Update along with latest critical security patches

    Microsoft released an update for IE that fixes 5 privately reported vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. One of the severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user visits a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer.
    "An attacker who successfully exploited any of these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the local user. Microsoft rates this update critical for Internet Explorer Windows Clients, except IE6 client, where it is rated Moderate." says Microsoft

    The update brings IE9 to 9.0.5 version. People who have automatic updates on need not to do any thing. If you have disabled automatic updates then you need to turn it on for this update

    No, you don't.

    All you need to do is run a manual update without turning on automatic updates, if you desire.

    Or, you can follow the links and manually download/install the update.
