Microsoft has quietly stopped serving security updates to Internet Explorer 11 on consumer and small business Windows 7 PCs unless the customer has successfully applied a browser update from April

Microsoft strips some Windows 7 users of IE11 patch privileges


From Computerworld:
The requirement and associated patch stoppage were similar to those Microsoft mandated for Windows 8.1 when it told customers they had to migrate to Windows 8.1 Update by June 10 or lose their patch privileges. The Windows 7 requirement, however, affected only IE11, Microsoft's newest browser, not the operating system.

Users who have not installed the IE security update issued on April 8 -- identified by Microsoft as MS14-018 -- on Windows 7, and who rely on Windows Update to download and install fixes, did not receive the June 10 IE update. Nor will IE11 receive any future updates, security or otherwise, until that MS14-018 has been installed. Windows Update will not display the appropriate IE11 patches.
