Google has disclosed an unpatched vulnerability in Microsoft Edge and IE and dubbed it "type confusion flaw." The vulnerability affects all versions of Windows, from 7, 8.1 and Windows 10.

Under Google's the 90-day disclosure policy, the report has now been published. [bugs.chromium.org]

Microsoft halted it's patch Tuesday for February saying that it would update on March. [webmasterworld.com] Of course, we don't know if this was the reason behind the delay for February's patch Tuesday.

Thanks for the update. I don't use IE or Edge much, except for site testing sites I'm working on. However occasionally I do answer an email while I have that browser open, and maybe even follow the occasional link.

Well, Edge I like much better than IE, though prefer to use other browsers for everyday usage, though it's rather comfortable to open pdf files in it if there is no other pdf reader and favorite browser is swamped with opened tabs)
