Hotfix for MSIE problem related to MS06-042
All those of you holding off on the MS06-042 patch or suffering from issues due to MSIE crashing on Windows 2000 SP4 and Windows XP SP1, there is a new hotfix out:

It's interesting to note the date on the file, as well as the claim that the crashes seem to be triggered by websites using the HTTP 1.1 protocol and compression.

Anyway, this might make your weekend more interesting.

Thanks Kathleen for the heads-up!
