Microsoft gets pushy with IE7
- Use WSUS 3.0 to manage updates in their organization
- Have Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) that have Internet Explorer 6 installed
- Have configured WSUS to auto-approve Update Rollups for installation
As Ars Technica is reporting, there is a lot of mis-information in the blogosphere about this issue.
People who have Windows computers at home will not get IE 7 put on their computer by Microsoft's updates.
The only group of people who need to be aware of what's happening are IT/Network administrators who have previously deployed the IE7 blocking toolkit to halt IE7 from being installed on computers within their network. These IT managers should closely read this knowledge base article.
There, you've been warned :)
