I just got an email from Microsoft letting me know of updates.

SECURITY UPDATE SUMMARY FOR SEPTEMBER 2004
Microsoft has released critical and important security updates
for technologies that affect several versions of Microsoft Windows,
Microsoft Office programs, developer tools, and imaging software.


LEARN MORE
To learn about these updates and which software is affected,
review
these notices on Microsoft.com:
http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkID=978162
http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkID=978161


One of these is a Security update for IE6 Service Pack 1 , which I have installed (even though I almost exclusively use Firefox).

The upgrade was KB833989 and was 1 Mg.

Anyone not getting email notification might like to check for upgrades themselves.
cheers

Thanks Misty. I can't get Windows Update to work at the moment and am refusing to download the SP2 for now so the links are handy for me. :-)

I thought that MicroSoft would never contact like this. Surely this is some sort of scam, be careful. Or, am I too paranoid
