Revision Note: V1.1 (August 9, 2011): Clarified that one of the defense-in-depth changes included in this security update addresses a memory address leak issue, publicly referenced as CVE-2011-1346. This is an informational change only.
Summary: This security update resolves eleven privately reported vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited any of these vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the local user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
