Microsoft has released an out-of-schedule fix for problems introduced by its last patch for Internet Explorer.

The fix, described in Microsoft support article ID 976749, was initially made available on October 28 and revised on Wednesday. It aims to rectify issues in the MS09-054 cumulative security update for Internet Explorer, which was included in the Patch Tuesday batch of security updates sent out on 13 October.

People will encounter problems with the original MS09-054 patch depending on various criteria, Microsoft said. If Internet Explorer 8 is running in standards mode, it will miscalculate the top position of an object in the browser window. In addition, Internet Explorer will encounter scripting errors when visiting web pages that use VBScript or a combination of VBScript and Javascript.
