    Again third party patches for the latest flaw in M$IE are available - and
    fourteen days before Micro$oft's own patch can be released.

    That means MS's patch will have 14 more days to test.
    The third party one probably hasn't had any real testing.

    Well its your choice, but in fourteen days the damage by being unpatched
    is 95% of all damage done.

    A patch is to fix something and it needs to be fixed ASAP, not sometime
    shortly like.
