Description


Paul has discovered a vulnerability in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the DHTML Edit ActiveX control when handling the "execScript()" function in certain situations. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session in context of an arbitrary site.

Secunia has constructed a test, which can be used to check if your browser is affected by this issue:

This can further be exploited to execute arbitrary code by running malicious code in the "Local Machine" zone.
