Earlier this week we told you about the gaping hole in security for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which allowed hackers to easily see well, pretty much everything you do, all your passwords, profiles, financial info...everything.

Needless to say, they've been working around the clock to fix it.

They say they've got a security patch you can (and should) download NOW.

Even for Windows XP.

If you have automatic updates, it will install itself for you.
