Microsoft will release an emergency security patch for Windows tonight. This is unusual, as Microsoft typically releases security patches only once per month on what has become known as “Patch Tuesday.” The rushed release may indicate that the security hole puts users at greater than usual risk.

A little more information can be found here and here. If you are a Windows user and you do not use Automatic Updates (which you probably should), or if you are a Windows sysadmin, you may want to go out of your way tomorrow morning to download and install the new patch. Home and small office users can do so via Windows Update, which can be found in the Start menu and/or in the Tools menu of Internet Explorer.
