Internet Explorer 11 - Security update causes IE to crash when accessing a course in Edit Mode

A security update recently pushed to all Windows users who use Internet Explorer 11 causes the IE browser to immediately crash when accessing a course with Edit Mode turned "On". Blackboard is aware of the issue, and while a long-term fix is promised from Blackboard Support, we have a potential workaround which we can implement on our Blackboard system which alleviates this specific issue.
  • We've done initial testing of the workaround, which we've implemented on one of the application servers in our test environment. 
  • Our current plan is to continue with testing with a goal of applying the change to our production environment during an upcoming scheduled maintenance window.
This problem only affects Internet Explorer version 11 which have Cumulative Security Update MS14-010 installed. Safari, Firefox, Chrome and earlier versions of Internet Explorer are not affected.

We'll update you with new information and confirmation of the maintenance window.
