RE: Latest IE patch breaking non username:[email protected] websites?
Yes. From MS: (a registry-based fix is detailed in the KB article) This Internet Explorer cumulative update also includes a change to the functionality of a Basic Authentication feature in Internet Explorer. The update removes support for handling user names and passwords in HTTP and HTTP with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or HTTPS URLs in Microsoft Internet Explorer. The following URL syntax is no longer supported in Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer after you install this software update: http(s)://username:[email protected]/resource.ext For more information about this change, please see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 834489.

We're starting to take complaints from folks who have installed the latest IE patch about various broken website functionality. The complaints are not related to folks trying to use the username:[email protected] functionality that was removed by the patch. Is anyone taking similar calls / seeing similar issues?
