Why:   Microsoft has just released a "critical" patch for the Internet
Explorer zero-day vulnerability that was used as part of the targeted
Google attack on Google's operations in China last week. This patch
was released out-of-band (not as part of Microsoft's standard 2nd Tuesday
of the month patch cycle).

The eEye Retina vulnerability management and assessment scanner has already
been updated to include vulnerability audits for this patch. Blink Endpoint
Protection software protects from zero-day vulnerabilities including this
Google attack exploit.
