Microsoft Admits IE Could be Patched Faster

Internet Explorer

phantomcircuit writes ""Microsoft is considering the early release of a fix for a bug in Internet Explorer that malicious hackers are actively exploiting online. The software giant usually only releases patches once a month but said it might put the fix out sooner if the problem grew severe enough."

So they could release this sooner and possibly prevent identity theft or other crimes, but they don't want to look any worse than they already do so they're not releasing it?!
