Windows 10 preview users can expect to download a new patch on Tuesday, December 9 as part of Microsoft's regular monthly "Patch Tuesday" event to fix an issue that centers around Internet Explorer
The patch has been designed for all versions of IE running on every version of Windows that Microsoft supports. The patch has been labeled as "Critical" for standard Windows users and "Moderate" for server builds. Microsoft says that Windows 10 users "are encouraged to apply the update". The patch will fix what the company is calling a "Remote Code Execution" issue and will require a restart of a user's PC after it is installed.
The security update is one of seven that Microsoft will release on Tuesday to fix holes in some of their software products. Two of those patches have been labeled as "Critical"; one just affects Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. The other fixes are centered around various versions of Microsoft Office. As usual, Microsoft has not offered details of what these patches are designed to fix ahead of their release so as to not alert hackers ahead of time.
