    Microsoft plans to release an out-of-cycle security patch next week to fix a software flaw that led to the sophisticated Download.Ject malware attack, company officials disclosed on Wednesday.

    The company will release the patch, which is currently being tested, next week as a "critical" security update to provide a "long-term solution to the core vulnerability" that led to the Download.Ject attack.

    Dean Hachamovitch, Microsoft group product manager for Internet Explorer, made the announcement, saying the patch would cover IE versions 5.01, 5.5 and 6.0.
