Microsoft has issued an update to Internet Explorer V9 to V11 after a scripting engine corruption vulnerability was discovered.
In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit the vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website, for example, by sending an email.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by modifying how the scripting engine handles objects in memory.
