Microsoft has issued a Security Update that sets the Java Permissions option for the Microsoft virtual server to "Disable Java" for the Restricted sites zone only. This setting disables potentially malicious Java code from running in an HTML-formatted e-mail message.
This Security Update protects you from a vulnerability in Outlook that allows HTML e-mail messages to start an instance of your Internet browser with security settings at a decreased level.
