well...as a quick note...the only place where you can be sure that a microsoft update is ACTUALLY a microsoft update is the microsoft update page (hence it's existance)..

This is what the update is for it sounds pretty major

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user viewed a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could be exploited through attacks on Microsoft XML Core Services. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
