Since this is being exploited in the wild, and affects a wide range of Internet Explorer versions, it looks like it will have some longterm success in targeted phishing and malvertizing campaigns. IE might be down to just 2% of usage, but it’s the only option out of the box on most WIndows Server versions, so it’s at least easy-ish to be running a vulnerable version until you can get patches applied or download a different browser first.

Probably only urgent to patch if you actually use it.
