Here are some of the technology stories that caught our eye this week:

On Monday, Microsoft issued a security advisory after hackers exploited a zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer. Today, the company released a permanent patch to resolve the issue. You can download the update at Microsoft’s Security TechCenter.

In cloud computing news, InfoWorld examined how core platform as a service providers are focusing on big infrastructure and devops; and advised what to do when the number of your company’s cloud services exceeds your IT team’s ability to manage them manually.

In other news, InfoWorld welcomed the changes to SharePoint 2013, including the new Machine Translation Service, which provides automatic machine translation of files and sites. The news site also questioned whether tech giants like Apple and Google make technical changes at the expense of their users; and discussed the complexities of estimating IT project costs.

There were new releases from Riverbed and Citrix. CRN detailed how Riverbed upgraded its Whitewater cloud storage with the releases of Whitewater Operating System 2.0 and Whitewater 3010. Citrix released the preview version of their Citrix Receiver for Windows 8/RT.

During an interview with CRN, Cisco Executive Vice President Rob Lloyd discussed the “co-opetition” of partnering with competitors VMware, Microsoft, and IBM. The company also launched the low-latency switching system Nexus 3548, which utilizes its new Cisco Algorithm Boost technology; and ceased development of its Application Control Engine load-balancer products.

Finally, ZDNet questioned whether mobile technology was forcing data center complexity.
