Microsoft Microsoft's dominant Internet Explorer browser has undergone a major security makeover to plug 10 vulnerabilities that puts millions at risk of PC takeover, address bar spoofing and information disclosure attacks. The monster IE update includes a fix for the 'createTextRange()' code execution flaw that caused zero-day drive-by downloads and a significant modification to the way the browser renders certain ActiveX controls. In all, Microsoft shipped five bulletins with patches for 14 different vulnerabilities in a range of Windows products. At the same time Microsoft has begun requesting that users upgrade their ME/98 machines because support ends July 11th, 2006.

you can't compare red hat and microsoft

RH make a package out of 3rd party software and if you want support from them you have to spend a lot of money

ms sells you software that was developed by them and offer support/updates for free

@ZaNkY:
stop reading theinquirer. they are as bad as /.
you only download >200mb when you get the full package of patches. if you download only those wich are relevant for your system you'll end up with less than 50mb
