Correction: After this patch is applied the KB number in Internet Explorer (IE) should be 2962872 (not KB 2975687).  There were inconsistencies with the Microsoft support documentation that caused this misunderstanding.



To check to see if the patch was applied, open Internet Explorer > Help menu > About Internet Explorer > check for (KB 2962872) next to the version number.
