Windows Update KB980182 was a cumulative security update for IE 8 for Windows 7. Here is a list of the security exploits it supposedly fixed. I rarely, if ever, use IE … but decided to install this update for the rare occasions I fire-up IE.
Last night I also installed KB915597 — the latest Windows Defender definition updates. That is the second one in four days, and the seventh during the month of March. Wow.
So far, so good. KB980182 insisted on a restart. So I restarted. I am still alive. So, so far so good.
Just to let you know. We probably will get more updates next Tuesday … since we will be in April.
Good luck. All the best.
