Microsoft has released an “out-of-band” update to address vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, and 8.
This is a cumulative update that addresses several vulnerabilities some of which also apply to IE 8 (in Windows 7 too).
Updates available for most Windows versions and optional updates include updates for .NET framework.

The hard way: Go to the security advisory page above and follow the steps in the workaround.
The super easy way: Don’t use IE!
