Software giant Microsoft will release an update today for its Internet Explorer browser to fix a security problem that could potentially expose personal computers to hacking attacks.
The company began offering a temporary patch for the problem Wednesday on a part of its website set up for technical issues.
"We have released a Fix it (on September 19) that is available to address that issue. This is an easy, one- click solution that will help protect your computer right away. It will not affect your ability to browse the web, and it does not require a reboot of your computer," Trustworthy Computing Director Yunsun Wee said.
The permanent solution to the problem will be automatically installed on PCs running on Microsoft's Windows operating system if the machine is set up to receive important updates.
"Earlier this week, an issue impacting Internet Explorer affected a small number of customers. The potential exists, however, that more customers could be affected... On September 21, we will release a cumulative update for Internet Explorer through Windows Update and our other standard distribution channels," Yunsun Wee added.
