Microsoft say that there will be another patch release early in December to fix these issue. There next date for patch 
release is on December 9th.  This MESON-048 has been giving me problem the first time my company installed it on user 
machine. I advise to wait for the next patch release to installed.

What do  you think are the real realworld possibilities of a problem?

(1) HIGH: Microsoft Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities

Affected Products:

Internet Explorer 6.0

Possibly Internet Explorer versions 5.01 and 5.5

Description:

Multiple new vulnerabilities have been reported in Internet Explorer which
can be exploited in tandem by a malicious website to execute arbitrary code
and/or access sensitive information on a system running a fully patched
browser (with the latest MS03-048 patch installed).

Technical details and proof-of-concept exploits have been posted.

Status: Vendor has not confirmed, no patch is available.

Council Site Actions:

Due to the late-breaking nature of this problem, we were unable to solicit
input from the council sites.
