Update about MS06-042 and IE 6.0 SP1

Hey folks –  Mike Reavey here, we’ve made an update to MS06-042 to let customers know of an issue they might see after applying the update to Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 systems.  The issue is limited to IE6SP1 only, and then only when visiting a website that use HTTP 1.1 and compression. Since MS06-042 resolves a number of security vulnerabilities we recommend customers continue to deploy the update, but we do plan to revise  *only*  the IE6SP1 update and  re-release the  bulletin with more information by August 22nd for all IE6SP1 customers.  As a reminder, Known Issues relating to security updates are tracked in the main Knowledge Base article for each bulletin, in this case Knowledge Base Article 918899.  Within this article there’s more information on how to get a hotfix that helps customers avoid this issue, as well as workarounds.
