On Tuesday Microsoft released MS06-069 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer. Since then, some customers experiencing difficulties loading the Bulletin webpage. The issue only affects the web page displaying the bulletin details, and be assured that this does not affect the installation or downloading of the actual package.
Background on the issue: The reason customers are only experiencing these issues with the IE bulletin is due to the amount of detail in the bulletin text. Over time, the File Information section has grown. Given all Internet Explorer security updates are cumulative, the File Information section has grown with each release. We do this so customers only need to install the latest Internet Explorer security update to be protected.
We are now at a point where the page related to the bulletin text is taking too long to load, resulting in the issues customers have been reporting to us. We have therefore decided to move the File Information details into the Knowledge Base article associated with the bulletin. We have only made the change to MS06-069 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer Bulletin. This will reduce the size of the page allowing it to load faster and more reliably. We had planned to move the File Information details into the Knowledge Base early next year, but because customers are affected today, we decided to make the changes sooner.
