SUMMARY

Microsoft has released a cumulative patch for Internet Explorer. This cumulative patch includes updates for the issues that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

813489 MS03-015: April, 2003, Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer

This cumulative patch also addresses the following newly discovered vulnerabilities: To exploit these flaws, an attacker must host a malicious Web site that contains a Web page that is designed to exploit this specific vulnerability. The attacker then must persuade users to visit the site. To use the HTML e-mail message attack vector, the attacker must create a specially formed HTML e-mail message and send it to the recipients.

Note As with the previous Internet Explorer cumulative patches that were released with bulletins MS03-004 and MS03-015, this cumulative patch causes the window.showHelp method to stop working if you have not applied the HTML Help update. If you have installed the updated HTML Help control from Microsoft Knowledge Base article 811630, you can still use HTML Help functionality after applying this patch.
